Islamic world unity foiled US plots against Holy Quds: Iranian envoy
Iran’s consul general in Heydarabad hailed Indian Muslims repeated protests to the US new policies about the Holy Quds, saying that the Islamic world’s unity has blocked implementation of the US conspiracies against the holy city which belongs to all of the divine religions.
Speaking to the Indian reporters on Friday, Mohammad Haqbin made the remarks while commenting on the US recent decision to declare the holy Quds, the first Qibla of the world Muslims, as the capital of the occupying regime of Israel and to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.
The Islamic states in every corner of the world condemn the US move, Haqbin said.
Elaborating Muslim countries’ latest move in the UN to counter the US decision, the Iranian diplomat said, “If the Islamic world maintains its unity and solidarity, it will continue to overcome arrogant powers and the US and Zionist regime will not be able to occupy and possess the holy Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime.
Iran has severely denounced US administration’s move to relocate its embassy to Quds as well as the announcement of the holy city as the Zionist regime’s capital, considering it a flagrant violation of the international resolutions, Haqbin added.
He further pointed out that the holy Quds which is home to Muslims’ first Qibla (direction for Muslims prayers), is an “inseparable part of Palestine” which enjoys a special significance before the Muslims as one of the three holiest Islamic sites.
US provocative and unwise decision to recognize the holy Quds as the Zionist regime’s capital will not contribute to regional peace and stability. Furthermore, it will escalate the tough and violent moves in the region, for which the US and Zionist regime should stand accountable, the official said.
Taking into consideration the UN resolutions, the holy Quds is considered a part of the occupied territories, Haqbin said adding that the US move to recognize the city as the Zionist regime’s capital is the flagrant violation of the international resolutions and that is why Iran strongly condemns the US move.
Members of the UN General Assembly have unanimously approved on Thursday a resolution denouncing US President Donald Trump’s decision about recognizing the holy Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime.
The resolution was approved by 128 votes in favor and nine against while 35 countries abstained.
Reacting to the UNGA move, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a twitter message that the vote was a ‘resounding global NO to Trump regime’s thuggish intimidation at #UN.”
