Iran president calls for arbitration body among Muslim countries

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for the establishment of an arbitration body to settle disputes among Muslim countries.

“I suggest the establishment of an arbitration body comprising of faithful, committed, righteous and trustworthy people with complete authority… to settle disputes among different groups and/or between them and the governments or among [different] states,” Ahmadinejad said in an address to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit on Wednesday.

Ahmadinejad said the arbitration body must have complete authority and all countries should be committed to accepting its judgments.

The two-day emergency meeting of OIC members was held upon the request of Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz in Mecca to address major issues facing the Muslim world and the latest developments in the region.

“It is obvious that the issue of establishing an institution for arbitration, while being important and functional for all members, must be discussed in more detail and, therefore, I suggest that the next summit meeting [of OIC] should be held in the first possible opportunity to address this issue and I am ready to host all my brothers in Tehran,” Ahmadinejad added.

“We should not forget that the Arrogance front has been wishing to dominate our region, a region of culture and wealth, for hundreds of years, and thousands of plots have been hatched and carried out and numerous wars have been imposed on our nations,” Ahmadinejad noted.

“The global Arrogance controls the main economic, media and power centers in the US and many European and non-European countries and seeks to dominate the entire world, and they consider controlling our region necessary for dominating the world; this is a historical plot which is at least five hundred years old.”

The Iranian president stated, “The enemies of our nations want a new Middle East that would be under their complete control and meet their illegitimate interests. Therefore, they have made plans for all regional countries and there is no exception.”

Stressing the fact that the enemies must not be underestimated, Ahmadinejad said Muslim countries have forgotten their real enemies and are instead fighting each other.

The Iranian president said “the personal, ethnic, tribal and religious differences” among Muslims have obviously made the enemies happy.

“We are on the verge of an all-out, devastating and fruitless ethnic and religious war that could last for decades,” Ahmadinejad added.

“It has been two years that Muslim countries are experiencing tension and undergoing very important developments on which the destiny and Muslims and the world depends… These developments must be managed in the region… If they are managed by others who have long records of hostility, then we should expect serious damages to the regional nations and resourses.”
