“We strongly support unity among Islamic nations”, the Majlis Speaker said, adding that such unity was critical in preserving the interests of the nations.
Of course the “interests” of the Iranian nation come first because the comment was made in conjunction with a courtship of Indonesia regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
Tehran is banking on Jakarta’s support in a possible upcoming showdown over its controversial nuclear activities which the West believes is for developing the A-bomb. Indonesia is one of 35 governing board members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that have the power to refer Tehran’s nuclear dossier to the United Nations Security Council.
However, it is obvious the Iranian Majlis view their republic to be the leader of this future pan Islamic nation.
