President Urges Unity among Regional States against West
Bfnews: "They (the hegemonic powers) seek to create divisions and tensions among regional countries. They don't want us to make progress," President Ahmadinejad said on Friday.

"We should stand by each other and have unity and solidarity in order to advance and realize our goals," he added.

He also underscored the need for regional solutions to the problems of the region.

President Ahmadinejad further said that the third trilateral meeting between Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan has been aimed at discussing ways to deny foreign powers any chance to interfere in regional countries' internal affairs.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Afghan President Hamid Karzai also highlighted unity in the face of global challenges.

In a relevant remarks earlier this month, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei stressed that unity is an overriding need for Muslim nations, and urged Muslim states to meet the opportunities created by the Islamic Awakening.

Regional developments and revolutions, repeated withdrawals of the US and hegemonic powers and the increasing weakness of the Israeli regime are unique opportunities for Muslim nations which should be utilized completely, Ayatollah Khamenei stated, addressing high-ranking Iranian officials, participants in the ۲۵th International Islamic Unity Conference and ambassadors of Muslim countries in Tehran.
