Enemies Fueling Sectarian Rift to Undermine Muslims, Larijani Warns
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s parliament speaker raised the alarm about the plots hatched by enemies to sap the Islamic world’s strength by sowing sectarian discord among Muslims.
“Enemies of the Islamic Ummah (community) are trying to reduce the Islamic Ummah’s strength by creating sectarian strife,” Ali Larijani said in a meeting with Qatar’s attorney general, Ali Bin Futais al-Merri, held in Tehran on Monday.
Cautioning about the detrimental effects of the regional crises on the Islamic nations, Larijani stressed the need for “consultation, closer political cooperation, regular meetings and unity” among the Muslim countries to prevent any divide.
The Qatari official, for his part, underlined that “trivial disagreements” should never upset the “amicable ties” between Tehran and Doha.
“Dialogue as well as reciprocal visits by parliamentary and political delegations can help bring the two countries closer on different regional and international issues,” added Merri.
The Qatari attorney general arrived in Tehran on Sunday for a two-day visit.
The trip is aimed at promoting Tehran-Doha cooperation in the legal and judicial fields and providing the opportunity for the two Muslim countries to share experience in handling juridical cases.
