Military option no solution to domestic woes: President Rouhani

 IRNA – No country can solve its domestic problems through despatching troops to other regional countries, said President Hassan Rouhani in the 13th Conference of Parliamentary Union of the OIC members (PUIC) in Tehran on Tuesday.

‘We should solve our problems through peaceful solutions,’ President Rouhani said, ‘We support constructive interaction in the Islamic World with each other based on equal footage, in which there is no room for foreign interference and exploitation.’

‘We should put our conflicts aside and reduce our foreign dependencies through relying on domestic capacities, social capitals, and rich resources to develop and promote the Islamic world,’ he added.

Rouhani reiterated that for solving the problems, Islamic countries should have an inward look rather than an outward one.

Saying that the cooperation between the OIC members should be more institutionalized, President Rouhani said, ‘We should solve our societies’ problems through domestic capacities and capabilities and not tying hope to others to solve our problems. This doesn’t mean isolationism.’
