Iran Ready to Expand Ties with All Revolutionary States
Bfnews: "Iran is ready to share its three decades of experience in fight for freedom with the Muslim communities; Tehran welcomes developments in Muslim countries, including the one in Egypt which ousted former president Hosni Mubarak's dictatorship; Iran is open to expand cultural relations with all revolutionized states, including Cairo," Hosseini said in a meeting with visiting media delegations from Muslim countries who were in Tehran to attend the International Conference on the Islamic Awakening and Youth.

He also noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran is a peace-seeking state which is against the use of any kind of violation in the world.

"Prompting division among Muslim nations and regional countries is the traditional approach of enemies," the culture minister underlined.

The two-day International Conference on Islamic Awakening and the Youth which had kicked off work at Tehran's Milad Tower Sunday, ended Monday evening.

Since the start of 2011, the region has witnessed a growing wave of popular protests resulted from the people's growing awareness and vigilance.

Tunisia saw the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in a popular revolution in January, which was soon followed by a revolution which toppled Hosni Mubarak in Egypt in February.

Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Libya have since been the scene of protests against their totalitarian rulers, who have resorted to brutal crackdown on demonstrations to silence their critics.

While Libya celebrated the victory of its revolution after the death of the country's dictator, Muammar Qaddafi, in October, uprisings continue in several other Muslim states.
