Larijani urges Muslim unity in face of Israel’s conspiracies

MUSCAT, Oman, May 13 (MNA) – Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani on Wednesday urged Islamic countries to foil the Zionist regime’s conspiracies through unity.

“Israel is seeking to create division between regional countries but Islamic countries with their unity should foil this conspiracy,” he said in a meeting with his Omani counterpart Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed al Isa'ee at Majlis A'Shura in Muscat.


He said the Islamic Republic of Iran is attempting to promote unity in the region.


Larijani also said the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan proved unsuccessful and blamed Washington for a growing instability in Pakistan.


The parliament speaker thanked the Omani nation for their support to the Gaza people during the Israeli onslaught on the costal enclave.


Israel started a blitz on the Gaza Strip on December 27 which lasted for 22 days and left a total of 1,324 Gazans killed.


Oman not concerned over Iran’s nuclear program


Al Isa’ee stated that Oman is not worried about Iran’s nuclear achievements.


“We believe Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons and will use it (nuclear technology) for peaceful purposes,” he added.


The Majlis A’Shura chairman also described the situation in Iraq as tragic and asked Iran to use its influence in helping to establish peace and security in the country.   


He went on to say that there has never been any conflict between Oman’s Shia and Sunni groups and blamed the United States for seeking to cause such conflicts in the region.


Regional countries are briefed on Iran’s nuclear program


Larijani said on Tuesday that Iran keeps regional countries up to date on its latest nuclear breakthroughs. 


“We have had negotiations with regional countries especially with Oman, and these countries know about Iran’s nuclear progresses,” he told reporters in Muscat upon arrival.   


He added that Iran and Oman enjoy close neighborly ties and share similar views on many issues.


The parliament speaker said during his 3-day trip to Oman he plans to hold talks with Omani officials about political, parliamentary, and economic relations as well as energy cooperation.
