Iranian President Seyed Ebrahim Rayeesi called on Muslim nations to strengthen their unity and establish stronger relations, and said that they should not allow enemies to deceive them through sowing seeds of discord.
The Iranian president made the remarks speaking at the opening ceremony of the 35th International Conference on Islamic Unity in Tehran on Tuesday,.
President Rayeesi urged Muslim nations to stay away from discord and division and to avoid any divisive remarks and statements.
The Iranian president also urged the Muslim Ummah to exert efforts to liberate themselves from the yoke of the global arrogance.
He also blasted the hegemonic powers for attempting to sow the seed of discord among Islamic nations.
President Rayeeis, meantime, paid homage to the late secretary-general of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Taskhiri, and anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated by the US in early January 2020.
He described the proximity of Islamic schools of thought as an essentially strategic approach for the entire Muslim world to adopt, describing Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) as the pivot of unity among Muslims.
