Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says political dialogue and showing understanding are the only solutions to the ongoing problems in the region, particularly issues in the Persian Gulf.
“Regional issues must be solved by regional countries and only through political dialogue and understanding,” Rouhani said.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran will spare no effort in establishing and promoting such a process and everyone must make efforts in this area,” the Iranian president added.
He pointed to the spread of extremism, violence and terrorism in the region and expressed regret that “the region is not in a good state.”
“We are all duty-bound to save Muslims from the threat of terrorism and to make efforts to establish stability in the region and reinforce fraternity among Muslims,” the Iranian president pointed out.
The Iranian President has also felicitated leaders of Muslim countries on the occasion of Eid al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice), which marks the culmination of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
President Rouhani expressed hope that Muslims would enjoy the spiritual and social benefits of Eid al-Adha and present to the world the true image of Islam, which is based on justice and mercy, through cooperation and harmony.
He also hoped that Muslims would reinforce their unity and cordial bonds and foil all efforts aimed at sowing discord among them.
