Iran will always support the nations who fight for their rights, hoping that the recent revolutions will lead to a unified front against the oppressors. This was the promise that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made at the closing ceremony of the two-day Islamic awakening conference in Tehran.
Over 700 scholars from 80 countries took part in the Islamic Awakening conference in Tehran to discuss the different aspect of recent development in North Africa and the Middle East.
The participants believe that world powers are trying to highjack the recent revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa to secure their own interests.
The conference became a venue for different views and ideas to be expressed … more than 70 prominent Sunni figures were present all emphasizing the importance of unity among Muslims while there were also plenty of lessons to be learnt even for the non-Muslim participants of the conference.
The scholars and thinkers in the conference made a final statement to conclude the conference as they agreed on 14 main points to keep the popular movements on the right track.
The permanent secretariat of the Islamic awakening conference will be established in Tehran to follow all the related developments in order to schedule a second conference in the near future.
