Addressing the 32nd edition of the international conference on Islamic unity in Tehran, Hassan Rouhani said Saturday Muslims have no way but to remain united in order to achieve victory over the US and fight its blatant oppression.
He noted that unity and brotherhood among Islamic countries must be assumed as a duty. The Iranian president, however, pointed out that unity could not be achieved through words, stressing that it rather required collective action.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Rouhani said Iran considers Saudi Arabia as its brother and is prepared to work with the Arab kingdom to resolve issues.
The 32nd International Islamic Unity Conference began in the Iranian capital under the motto "Quds, axis of unity among Ummah," with over 350 foreign guests from 100 countries in attendance.
The event is held annually on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) in a bid to lay the ground for stronger solidarity among Muslims and provide appropriate solutions for their problems.
