Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday called on Arab parliamentarians to show Muslim unity and support Iran against threats from the West.
Addressing visiting MPs from Arab countries at the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Tehran, Iran's Press TV quoted Rouhani as saying that the "multifaceted" threats against Iran would eventually have a negative impact on all Muslim nations.
Rouhani attacked Israel, saying that the "Zionist regime" gains the most benefit from the current upheaval in the Muslim world.
The Iranian president condemned using violence against Muslims in the name of anti-terror activities.
