  • Disunity benefits enemy, President Raeisi  warns

Iran's President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi described Muslim unity as a basic strategy of the Islamic Republic, cautioning that any move harming unity will serve the objectives of the adversaries.

According to Tasnim news agency, addressing a cabinet session on Wednesday, President Raeisi offered congratulations on the outset of the Unity Week, describing the great prophet of Islam, Prophet Mohammad (Blessings of God upon him and his progeny), and his household as the cornerstone of unity in the Muslim world and the human society.

Referring to unity in the Islamic world as the strategy of the Islamic Republic and discord as the strategy of the enemies, the president warned that any deliberate or unintentional move harming unity will serve the interests of the enemy.

Calling for collective efforts to strengthen unity among all Iranians from various ethnic and religious backgrounds, Raeisi said, “Of course, it does not mean the unification of all ethnicities, denominations, thoughts and dialects, but rather avoiding division and having a united outlook on the strategic goal of the Islamic Republic, namely progress.”

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has on many occasions urged vigilance in the face of enemy ploys to gain a political and cultural foothold in Iran, calling for unity among the Muslims.
