Islamic Unity Confab Opens

The 35th International Conference on Islamic Unity opened in Tehran on Tuesday.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, President Ebrahim Raeisi called on Muslim nations to strengthen their unity and establish stronger relations with each other, saying they should avoid any move that may create rifts within their ranks, reported. 
Raeisi paid homage to the late secretary-general of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Taskhiri, and former commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps General Qasem Soleimani, who was assassinated by the US last year.
He said the general’s endeavors and Ayatollah Taskhiri’s scientific steps helped erase doubts and deviations in the Muslim world, and effectively fostered unity and cohesion among Muslims.
He described the proximity of Islamic schools of thought as an essentially strategic approach for the entire Muslim world to adopt, describing Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as the pivot of unity among Muslims.
Raeisi urged Muslim nations to stay away from discord and division and avoid any divisive remarks and statements.
