RNA - "Certain Arab countries' competition to normalize relations with the Zionist regime and their conceding attempts based on US-Israeli so-called peace plans are betrayal to the Palestinian cause," Ferdosipour said in a meeting with Palestinian Assistant Minister for Africa, Asia and Australia Affairs Mazen Shamiyah.


The Iranian envoy said that unity among the defenders of Palestine throughout the world is needed.


Ferdosipour stressed Iran's support for the Palestinians and said that unity and resistance are the only ways to regain the rights of the Palestinian nation.


Shamiyah, for his part, appreciated Iran's support for the oppressed Palestinians, and called for expansion of bilateral ties and consultations with Iran in order to counter the spread of Zionists influence in the region.


He also hailed Iran's effective role in fighting extremist and Takfiri terrorism in the region.


The two sides also emphasized regional and international organizations' more cooperation to defend the Palestinian cause.


In relevant remarks in early August, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a meeting with a visiting Hamas delegation in Tehran renewed Iran's support for the Palestinian nation against the ongoing Israeli atrocities.


"Iran's stance on Palestine is principled and unchangeable," Zarif said during the meeting with the Hamas delegation headed by Ezzat al-Rashq.


During the meeting, Hamas thanked Iran's stance on Palestine.


The Hamas delegation, for its part, thanked Iran's stances and support for Palestine.
