IRNA: Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, warned here on Monday against the enemy plots to encourage division among Muslim nations.
He made the remarks in a meeting with Egyptian journalists and political activists, who were here to attend the 23rd anniversary of demise of Islamic Republic Founder late Imam Khomeini which was observed on June 3.
“Iran is ready to confer with the Arabic nations as brother counties on various regional and international issues; Muslim nations of the region are rich enough and their cooperation will boost their independence; Tehran is ready to extend its experience in all fields to all Muslim countries, including Egypt.”
“Imam Khomeini believed that betterment of world affairs would be possible in light of betternment of each country’s problems and all nations can lead peaceful co-existence if their governments are changed positively.”
“All people form any background or color or region or races are regarded the same in Islam and it is a religion for all mankind.”
President underlined that Iran’s view toward recent regional Islamic Awakening is optimistic because it believes that these developments are rooted in the nations’ desires.
“Iranian and Egyptian nations should work actively and closely to make a more just world and in the meantime, the global sovereignty of monotheism.”
Ahmadinjead wished success for Egyptian nation, noting that no third party would be able to affect Tehran-Cairo constructive relations.
The president called Iran and Egypt relations “cultural and historical”, adding that the two nations have been always inspiring for other nations of the world.
“Iran will resist hegemonic powers’ demands which ask Tehran to halt its ideals in defense of the oppressed nations and groups and in the meantime, their calls for the halt of Tehran’s peaceful nuclear activities,” he underscored.
“Iran believes that the Syrian issue should be resolved through national talks and both sides should help the secure civilians’ life; NATO and hegemonic powers’ military interference will not bring peace and prosperity for the Syrian nation or any other one.”
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.
Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.
The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Bashar al-Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but the US and Zionist regime plots could spark some new unrest in certain parts of the country.
In case of Iran nuclear dispute with the West it should be noted that Washington and its Western allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.
Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.
Despite the rules enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) entitling every member state, including Iran, to the right of uranium enrichment, Tehran is now under four rounds of UN Security Council sanctions for turning down West’s calls to give up its right of uranium enrichment.
Tehran has dismissed the West’s demands as politically tainted and illogical, stressing those sanctions and pressures merely consolidate Iranians’ national resolve to continue the path.
