Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the strengthening of unity between Iran and Egypt is the best way to end the domination of the hegemonic powers and Israel over the region.
“If Iran and Egypt stand together, there is no need for war to root out the domination of the enemies and Zionists, and the news of unity between Iran and Egypt will by itself force the cowardly Zionists to run from the region,” Ahmadinejad said in Tehran on Saturday during a meeting with the families of Egyptian revolutionaries killed during the popular uprising that ousted former dictator Hosni Mubarak.
“The Zionists have blatantly declared that they will not limit themselves to the occupation of the Palestinian territories and that they are greedily eyeing other territories as well. But if regional countries stand together, there is no need for war to expel the Zionists and domineering [powers] from the region,” he added.
He went on to say said that all regional problems can be solved if the “domination of the Zionists, the United States, and their allies in the region is rooted out.”
The Iranian president described the Egyptian people as “the pioneers of nations’ popular movements in their calls for freedom and justice” and added, “The Iranian nation will support the Egyptian people to the very end and will stand by them in their efforts to achieve their goals.”
The Iranian nation is ready to use all its strength to help Egypt’s efforts at development since it considers the progress of Egypt to be the same as its own progress and the progress of all free and sovereign nations, he stated.
