President Ahmadinejad made the remark in the first round of talks with his Djiboutian counterpart Ismail Omar Guelleh, who arrived here Saturday on a three-day visit at the head of a high-ranking politico-economic delegation. “Islamic states shoulder a responsibility at the current sensitive juncture,” he said.
