His Eminence (may Allah prolog his life) met with the
Russian Ambassador to Baghdad Maxim Maximove and the accompanied delegation.
His Eminence (may Allah prolog his life) welcomed all
types of cooperation, expanding the levels of investment and mutual benefits
between the two countries in order to minimize the unemployment crisis in Iraq.
His Eminence (may Allah prolog his life) stressed
that the world should distinguish between the
Islam in Najaf whose cornerstones are love, friendliness and forgiveness,
not the one who impersonate Islam as a religion of killing, violation and
disuniting. The Islam in Najaf is the one following the Imam Ali’s (PBUH) saying
“people are of two types: your brother in religion or your like in creation” or
Imam Hussein’s (PBUH) saying “I hate to start fighting them”.
His Eminence (may Allah prolog his life) stated that
should the world commit to Imam Hussein’s (PBUH) saying, there will be no
fighting on the earth.
The ambassador gratefully thanked His Eminence (may
Allah prolong his life) for the meeting, briefing him with reality of the
Muslims in Russia
and the Iraqi-Russian scholarships.
