RNA - "All Muslims should voice their support for the Palestinians," Amir Abdollahian said in a meeting with Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement Representative in Iran Nasser Abu Sharif in Tehran on Tuesday.
He said that the United States has targeted Russia, Hezbollah and Hamas by resorting to the inefficient way of imposing new phase of sanctions, which in practice will strengthen the will of the target groups.
Nasser Abu Sharif, for his part, pointed to the current situation in Palestine, and said, "The humanitarian situation is very worrisome in Gaza in a way that hospitals lack necessary medical facilities and amenities due to the human siege of Gaza."
He expressed gratitude to Iran's effective support for Palestine and al-Quds, adding that the Resistance Front have thwarted all malicious plots by the US and Israel in the region.
In relevant remarks in mid-February, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani underlined Iran's continued support for the Palestinian resistance and Intifada (uprising) against Israel, calling on the Muslim world to return the Palestinian cause to the main agenda of the Muslim world.
"The Islamic Republic supports the Palestinian Intifada and all Palestinian groups in their fight against the Zionist regime. We should turn this into the main issue in the Muslim world," Larijani said in a meeting with a number of members of Palestinian resistance groups in Tehran.
According to Fars news agancy, he said some measures taken by the western states, including the US, as well as certain regional countries, have marginalized and prevented the settlement of the Palestinian issue, adding that some countries are collaborating with enemies to sow discord among Shiites and Sunnis.
Larijani underlined that Iran doesn’t differentiate between Shiites and Sunnis since they share many commonalities, and it has supported the Palestinian nation (although they are Sunnis) for the past 37 years.
