Iranian Parliament Mulls Formation of Islamic Army

TEHRAN (FNA)- Members of the Iranian parliament's Security Commission are developing a project to create the United Army of Islamic Countries, two lawmakers said here on Monday.



Two members of the Iranian parliament's security commission, Ismail Kosari and Mahmoud Ahmadi, told Trend News that the commission was addressing the issue. However, neither of them divulged the details of the project.

Kosari said that once the project was approved at the parliament, the Iranian government would discuss with Islamic countries the creation of the United Army of Islamic Countries in order to prevent attacks on the member states.

The United Army will be created under the auspices of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC).

According to the MPs, besides preventing attacks on its member states, the United Army will also prevent conflicts among them.

Ahmadi also said he believes if the project is discussed and approved by Islamic countries, they will render not only moral but also practical assistance to Palestine.
