Larijani: PUIC, opportunity for broader ties with friendly countries

Tehran, Jan 23, IRNA – Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said before leaving for Baghdad to participate in the 11th session of the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member States (PUIC) that the gathering provides an opportunity to strengthen ties with friendly countries.

'The Islamic world is entangled with major problems today, which will be surveyed in the gathering of the Islamic countries' parliament speakers in Baghdad,' said Larijani, who believes the PUIC will be a great chance for exchange of ideas and problem solving.
Asked if the Saudi Arabia's destructive policies, too, will be among the issues of discussion in the PUIC, Larijani said that although the Islamic world is entangled with major problems, the Saudis with the problems they have created are wasting the energy and assets of world Muslims, as no other name can be found for their policies.
He meanwhile noted that Iran-Iraq relations, which have improved noticeably in the course of the recent years, bilateral ties and regional developments, will be focused in the event.
