Tehran, The 33rd International Islamic Unity Conference on Thursday kicked off in Tehran with the participation of delegations from 93 countries including a delegation from Syria, chaired by Minister of Islamic Endowments (Awqaf) Mohammad Abdul-Sattar al-Sayyed, and in presence of Syria's Ambassador in Tehran Adnan Mahmoud.
More than 500 participants in the Conference will discuss the challenges facing the Islamic World and the key issues of its states, on top the Palestinian cause.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, in a speech delivered at the opening of the conference, affirmed that the reason behind all the wars, bloodshed and sedition in the region over the past three decades has been the U.S. and the Zionist entity.
President Rouhani indicated at the same time that the U.S. goal behind deploying its occupational forces in Syria has never been combating terrorism at all, and today it is stealing the oilfields in this country.
Rouhani reaffirmed that the U.S. have never been a friend for the region and the Islamic World and it hasn't contributed to solving their issues.
He indicated that the enemies, on top the U.S. wanted to make Muslims forget al-Quds, particularly after the conspiracy which is called Deal of the Century against the Palestinians, yet all of their attempts have been doomed to failure thanks to the awareness of the Islamic World.
The Iranian President pointed out that Washington works on exploiting demonstrations which have righteous demands in Lebanon and Iraq, and it tries to divert them from their right track, in addition to exerting maximum pressure on Iran which has achieved an impressive growth despite of everything.
