TEHRAN, Jun. 21 (MNA) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stressed Wed. that unity in the Islamic world must be bolstered to impede Zionism and terrorism across the region.

"Today, the Zionists' overt and covert intervention can be seen in almost every dispute among countries of the region," the Iranian president said.

Terrorists are provided with arms and tasked with bombing the region to serve Israel’s interests. It is crystal clear that the Israeli regime is sponsor of terrorism in the region.”

Rouhani further maintained that disputes in the region and the Islamic world, such as disagreements between Iran and Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Saudi Arabia, and Egypt and Turkey, are beneficial to Zionism and terrorism.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has helped the Iraqi nation in their fight against terrorism and we hope to see Mosul liberated in the near future and serve as a symbol of victory of regional countries against the terrorists’ plots,” he said.

Iran will not let terrorism to spread in the region, said Rouhani adding: "If the masters of terrorism decide to spread terrorist acts to the sacred land of Iran, they must know that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not let terrorists and their masters to do so".

The president warned terrorists that Iran would not allow them to carry out their inhumane acts inside the Iranian terrorist, adding "combatting terrorism is a decision made by the entire Iranian nation. Acting against terrorist headquarters has been decided in the Supreme National Security Council and we have given our armed forces even more authority for countermeasure.”

He also said: ""We will not let terrorists to turn Iran into a battlefield. Their masters must know that Iran is different from other countries of the region," Rouhani continued.

"The new US administration must know that the Iranian nation will neither remain silent not tolerate any intimidation and pressure, but rather it will respond adequately,” he warned.
