The delegation addressed many issues during talks held with Iranian officials including the latest developments in Occupied Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque, Gaza siege, Jerusalem Intifada (uprising) as well as boosting mutual relations.
The Hamas delegation met with the Iranian Foreign Minister, Muhammad Javad Zarif, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, Foreign Affairs Ministry Advisor, and Iranian Foreign Policy Strategic Council Chairman Dr. Kamal Kharrazi.
The Head of Hamas delegation, Resheq, told the PIC reporter that both sides have overcome a chill in relations over the past six years. “The relation with Iran and its support for the Palestinian people have never stopped”, he said.
