IRAN HOSTS LEADING INSURGENCY GROUPS

Feruary 2, 2004

NICOSIA [MENL] -- Iran plans to host leading Islamic groups regarded by the United States as terrorist in a 10-day conference next week.

Iranian officials said the conference to discuss strategy against the United States and its allies will begin on Sunday and last 10 days. They said Iran, in wake of an intense debate that pitted reformers against conservatives, has invited such organizations as Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic Jihad and Al Qaida allies such as Ansar Al Islam.

The conference, termed "Ten Days of Dawn," is meant to mark the 25th anniversary of the return to Iran from exile of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who led the revolution that ousted the Shah of Iran in 1979. Officials said the conference, ordered by Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei, marks Iran's investment in fostering Islamic insurgency groups in the Middle East, Asia and South America.

Hizbullah, sponsored by Iran in 1983, will have the largest presence in the Teheran conference. Hizbullah will be represented by 17 branches around the world.
