Young people from 60 countries have arrived in Iran to attend the conference, whose keynote speaker is Sheikh Isa Qassim, the spiritual leader of Bahrain’s Shia majority.
Commemorating the martyrs of Bahrain’s uprising and putting emphasis on the death of the so-called “deal of the century” are among the themes of event.
The Iranian Seminaries Management Center, Al-Musatfa International University and World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought have organized the event.
US President Donald Trump has bombastically called Washington’s controversial plan on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict “deal of the century.”
The plan, formulated by Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, will reportedly deny Palestinians any right to a sovereign Palestinian state.
In an upcoming US-sponsored summit in Bahrain, Washington is set to unveil the economic dimensions of its self-touted “deal”.
All Palestinian factions have boycotted the event, slamming Washington for what they view as an attempt to offer financial rewards for the Palestinians to accept the Israeli occupation.
The Palestinians have also rejected the so-called deal.
On Sunday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas once again rejected the deal as “a humiliating blackmail.”
