Iranian President Ahmadinejad urges Ulema from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran to work for regional piece

Iranian President Ahmadinejad on Thursday recommended a joint sitting of Ulema from Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan to chalk out a combined strategy to combat terrorism in the region.


While speaking to a private TV channel, Iranian president said we should not kill each other as we are Muslims and believe in one God. ‘We should only think like a Muslim’, he said. He said our Holy Prophet (PBUH) was neither a Sunni nor Shia but a Muslim.


Killing each other strengthens the enemy and weakens us, he added saying that people in Pakistan are not scared of terrorist attacks and blasts, in fact they are facing it with courage.  Ahmadinejad expressed the confidence that his current visit will lead to open new avenues of cooperation in various fields with Pakistan.


The Iranian president said, “Western powers do not want Pakistan to progress. Iranians are with the people of Pakistan and will not leave them alone.”  He warned that presence of US in Afghanistan is dangerous for regional countries.


According to the report, the Iranian President welcomed the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, but expressed reservations about its effectiveness. He noted, “The cruelty in Gaza should unite Muslims. He said he welcomes the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, but he seems to not be very optimistic about the ceasefire.”


A ceasefire between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers took hold on Thursday after eight days of conflict, although deep mistrust on both sides cast doubt on how long the Egyptian-sponsored deal can last.


Iranian President Ahmadinejad is currently in Islamabad to attend a summit of developing countries.
