TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Secretary General of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought (WFPIST) Ayatollah Mohsen Araki said enemies’ plot to bring about the disintegration of Middle Eastern countries, including Iraq and Syria, has been unsuccessful.

Addressing the second international conference of resistance scholars in Beirut on Wednesday, Ayatollah Araki underlined that the conference signifies a new era that features the end of US dominance over the region.

“The plot to fragment and break up Iraq, Syria and the entire region has failed,” he said, adding, “The world is witnessing the defeat of the Zionist enemy in Lebanon and Palestine and the region.”

He further hailed the Resistance Front’s achievements against hegemonic powers and said all of their attempts to destroy the front have failed.

According to the head of the Union of Resistance Scholars, Sheikh Maher Hamoud, more than 200 scholars from more than 80 countries have taken part in the two-day event in Beirut.

“True Promise: Palestine between Balfour Declaration and Divine Promise” is the theme of the conference.

The first international conference of resistance scholars was held in Lebanon in May 2016.
