Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 5
By Fatih Karimov – Trend:
Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani said that Muslims must choose moderation path and cooperate with each other.
The Iranian president made the remarks during the opening ceremony of the 31st International Islamic Unity Conference that started in Tehran Dec. 5 morning, the State-run IRINN TV reported.
He further said that if Iran did not interact with “friend countries” in the region, now Iraq’s Mosul, and Syria’s Aleppo and Bokmal cities would not be free.
Rouhani added that the region and the world owe those who fought terrorists in Syria and Iraq, as they fought for regional security and stability.
The Iranian president also said that terrorism is not a threat only to the region, but to the entire world, including the US and Europe.
He noted that the Muslims must continue attempts against terrorism until eradicating all its elements in the region.
Over 520 dignitaries, ministers, scholars, and university professors have attended at the 31st International Islamic Unity Conference.
The aim of the three-day summit is to lay the ground for unity and solidarity in the Islamic World in order to achieve proximity among their scientific and cultural viewpoints in terms of Islamic jurisprudence, principles of jurisprudence, Islamic theology, and interpretation.
Another objective of the Conference is to examine the Muslims’ issues, provide appropriate solutions to them, and take a joint stance against them.
