The President called the rapprochement and unity of the Islamic community the emphasis of the late Imam Khomeini (RA) and Supreme Leader of the Revolution, and a strategic move in the World of Islam, and said, "Efforts for the unity of the Islamic community must be pursued seriously and resolutely by religious scholars."
Speaking on Tuesday at the opening ceremony of the 35th International Conference on Islamic Unity, Ayatollah Dr Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi appreciated the efforts and measures taken to achieve Islamic unity and rapprochement of religions, and said, "The actions of the great Martyr Soleimani and the late Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Taskhiri for eradicating doubts and deviations in the Islamic world and creating unity and cohesion in the Islamic community are lasting and praiseworthy”.
Ayatollah Raisi said, "The Islamic Awakening, which was formed thanks to the efforts and the blood of martyrs, should not turn cold and we should all work to maintain and strengthen it".
The President added, "Today, we are witnessing divisions and conspiracies of the enemies of Islam in all countries around the region, including Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Lebanon and Yemen, and we must all try to protect the Islamic community from these conspiracies".
Emphasising that the Islamic community is the only important power that the domineering system sees before it, Ayatollah Raisi said, "The domineering system is trying to sow discord amongst the Islamic community and using its media power to undermine the power factors of the Islamic community, but the effective human resources and scientists and scholars are the greatest energy, power and opportunity of the Islamic community who must stand against the conspiracies of the enemies”.
