Iranian Parliamentary Director General for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Sat. that Iran will continue its firm support for the Palestinian Resistance forces and the Syrians will not allow the country to once again fall victim to the Zionist terrorists.
He made the remarks in a meeting with the Palestinian Ambassador to Iran Salah Al-Zawawi in Tehran on Saturday.
Amir-Abdollahian said “the Islamic Republic of Iran continues its firm support for the Resistance, and will not give up supporting the Palestine cause and will help Palestine in the face of the Zionist regime’s threats that threaten the security of all the countries in the region.”
He added that resistance and holding a referendum with the participation of all the main inhabitants of the historical Palestinian territory, including Christians, Muslims and Jews, are two main pillars of the political and practical solution to the Palestinian cause.
Amir-Abdollahian, who is also the secretary general of the International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada said that Iran will continue its follow-up on the situation of 4 abducted Iranian diplomats through international bodies.
The Iranian parliamentary official concluded his remarks, saying “the Zionists attempt to control Syria after ISIL defeat, but the Resistance forces and military advisers of the Islamic Republic of Iran continue to maintain their presence alongside Syria to confront terrorism,” adding “the Syrians will not allow the country to once again fall victim to the Zionist terrorists.”
Al-Zawawi, for his part, said in the meeting that Trump’s decision to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is resulting from his ignorance and stupidity about the history of Jerusalem and its place in Islam, and considered the move to have a completely negative effect on Tel Aviv.
Referring to the role of some of the regional countries in advancing US policies and the occupying regime of Jerusalem, the Palestinian ambassador to Tehran said that the United States has put these countries under economic pressures to implement Trump plans in the region.
He stressed the responsibility of the criminal Zionists in this matter.
