Raeisi lauds elites role in unifying Iran, Pakistan nations

TEHRAN, Apr. 23 (MNA) – Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi hailed the Pakistani elites’ role in unifying the Iranian and Pakistani nations and frustrating enemies’ divisive plots.

“Despite all conspiracies aimed at sowing schism between the two nations and among Muslim peoples, enemies were frustrated due to your insight,” Raeisi said on Monday.

He made the remarks in a meeting with scientific elites in the Pakistani capital Islamabad, to which he has traveled at the head of a high-ranking politico-economic delegation.

Raeisi said the people of Pakistan viewed the Iranian nation as people, “who would raise their voices against oppression and [in favor of] the emancipation of the oppressed on the basis of [their] religious teachings.”

The president said Iran’s Islamic Revolution -- which deposed the country’s tyrannical United States-backed Pahlavi monarchy in 1979 -- was characterized by opposition to oppression, injustice, and colonialism.

“The Islamic Revolution is in favor of the oppressed and the [international] Muslim nation’s unity and esteem,” he added.

He considered the anti-oppression nature to be a common feature between the two nations, saying, “In this regard, the Pakistani and Iranian nations stand together.”

Elsewhere in his remarks, Raeisi commended the Pakistani nation’s pro-Palestinian sentiments and endeavors, including their pro-Palestinian rallies throughout the country.

“Today, the presence of all nations across Muslim and non-Muslim countries is effective towards [creating] deterrence against the Zionist regime [of Israel] and smashing the regime’s and its supporters’ fake power,” the president said.

Raeisi’s remarks came amid soaring pro-Palestinian sentiments throughout the international community in light of the Israeli regime’s October 2023-present war on the Gaza Strip that has so far killed more than 34,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children.

“What is more lamentable is that the United States, the UK, and Western countries support these atrocities, and the international organizations that lay claim to defending human rights, have lost their efficiency [to stop these crimes],” he said.
