Islamic Awakening conference to be held in Tehran
Islamic Awakening conference convoked to discuss the current condition in the region.
Over 500 scholars and intellectuals from 80 world countries are to participate in an international gathering to be held here later on September to discuss the Islamic Awakening, The Leader Of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Sayyed Imam Ali Khamenei’s advisor for International Affairs said Sunday.
Speaking to reporters, Ali-Akbar Velayati said that the two-day “Session on the Islamic Awakening” would begin its work in the Iranian capital on September 17.
Referring to the waves of the Islamic uprisings rippling across the region, Velayati stressed,“Safeguarding achievements of each revolution is more important than making revolutions.”
As for the ongoing situation in Syria, he said that Syrian leaders were responding demands of their people for making broad reforms.
Lambasting the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) for not reacting properly to the regional Islamic Awakening movements, Velayati said “The OIC is moving towards ineffectiveness.”
Portraying a bright future for Egyptians, the advisor anticipated that Cairo will play a crucial role in the Arab world.
