Foreign policy is a policy governing relations with foreign countries, the way the Islamic countries should interact in the international level.

Nafy-e Sabil (no domination over Muslims) is one of the important jurisprudential rules of Islam which denies non-believers any rule and authority over Muslims.

Based on this jurisprudential rule, Imam Khomeini strongly opposed any kind of hegemony and intervention on the part of non-Muslim countries over Muslim affairs.

 Imam Khomeini’s opposition to imperialism, to the imperial powers’ domination over Muslims and to Muslims’ dependence on them are in line with the same objective.

Unity among various strata of people is another constituent of Imam Khomeini’s thought in the world of politics. Imam  believed that unity was one of the blessings of the Islamic revolution which led to dignity of the Iranian nation and the Islamic Ummah.

He considered unity to be the secret behind the victory of the Islamic revolution.
