Iranian President Mahmoud Adhmadinejad and Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday vowed to form an alliance against what they called U.S. and Israeli conspiracies against the Islamic world.
Iran’s ISNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying that the Islamic world in general and Iran and Syria in particular should maintain their vigilance and neutralize conspiracies aimed at sowing discord among Muslims.
Ahmadinejad said that what the U.S. really aims for under the pretext of development in the region “is just another effort to strengthen its own status and that of the Zionists.”
The Iranian president also praised the agreement by rival Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah to form a unity government.
“Dispute among Muslim factions has always been harmful for regional nations and useful for Islam’s enemies,” he said.
ISNA quoted Assad as saying that expansion of Tehran-Damascus ties would help resolve the problems of the Islamic world. He accused the U.S. of trying to attract public opinion within the Islamic world by undermining Iran-Syria relations.
“America’s policies have failed in the region … By creating divisions among Muslim nations, Washington wants to pursue its aims,” IRNA quoted Assad as saying during his meeting with Ahmadinejad, who urged “Muslim countries to preserve unity.”
