Iranian Parliament Speaker’s Special Advisor for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian slammed the establishment of relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, and said that the UAE will be caught in the “Zionist regime’s fire”.
“UAE’s new approach for normalizing ties w/fake, criminal #Israel doesn’t maintain peace & security, but serves ongoing Zionists’ crimes. Abu Dhabi behavior has no justification, [and is a] turning back on the Palestine cause. W/ that strategic mistake, #UAE will be engulfed in Zionism fire,” Amir Abdollahian tweeted on Friday.
The US, the UAE and the Zionist regime in a joint statement on Thursday, announced the official establishment of ties between Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv.
The statement claimed the Zionist regime will stop annexation of occupied Palestinian lands in return for the normalization of ties with the UAE.
Critics see the agreement as an attempt by US President Donald Trump to save his ailing presidential campaign against the Democrat candidate Joe Biden.
In a relevant development earlier on Friday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry in a statement strongly condemned the establishment of ties between the United Arab Emirates and the “Zionism regime” of Israel, and termed it an “idiotic act” by the UAE.
The Iranian foreign ministry strongly condemned the UAE’s decision to set up diplomatic relations with “the Zionist regime of Israel” and termed it as a strategic act of idiocy by Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv which will undoubtedly result in the further reinvigoration of the axis of resistance in the region.
The statement further stressed that “the oppressed nation of Palestine as well as other freedom-seeking peoples worldwide will never forgive the sin of normalization of the ties with the occupier and bloodthirsty regime of Israel and also the act of those who approve and cooperate with its crimes”.
Undoubtedly the innocent bloods shed during the past seven decades of resistance to free the sacred land of Palestine which is Muslims’ first Qibla will sooner or later take those that betrayed the Palestinian cause by the throat, it added.
The statement also stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran considers as dangerous Abu Dhabi’s act of normalizing ties with the fabricated, illegitimate and anti-human regime of Israel, and warns the Zionist regime against any kind of meddling in the Persian Gulf region’s equations.
The UAE administration and all other governments which approve of this move should be ready to take the responsibility of all the consequences of such a measure, it further said.
The Iranian foreign ministry’s statement also noted that the history will definitely demonstrate how this strategic mistake by the Zionist regime and the dagger which stabbed both the Palestinian nation and the Muslim peoples in the back will backfire and further strengthen the resistance axis by enhancing unity and solidarity against the Zionist regime and the backward governments in the region.
The foreign ministry advised those rulers who, from inside their “glass castles”, hatch plots against the Palestinians and other regional oppressed nations, including Yemen, to regain consciousness and stop erring in distinguishing between friends and foes.
