Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says Islamic nations are now more determined to stop Israel and liberate the occupied Palestinian territories.
“The developments we have witnessed during the past months in the region are movements towards the independence of regional countries, and the participation of the people in determining their own fate,” Mehmanparast said on Wednesday.
He added that the regional countries are also moving towards cutting “dependence on big powers and the supporters of the illegitimate Zionist regime (Israel).
The Iranian official described the issue of Palestine and East al-Quds (Jerusalem) as “one of the serious matters in the Middle East” and said Zionist Israel, that pursues its objectives by taking advantage of the dominance of world powers in the region and their support for its aggressions, is now witnessing the fall of dictatorships in the region.
“We have warned various countries in the region as well as Muslim nations that disputes among Islamic countries and groups will only serve the interests of the enemies of Islam, on top of them the illegitimate Zionist regime (Israel),” Mehmanparast pointed out.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson added that Israel should not be allowed to create rifts among Islamic countries and groups.
The late founder of the Islamic Republic and The Leader Of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Sayyed Rohollah Imam Khomeini, designated the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan as the “International Quds Day” in a show of support for the world’s Muslims, in particular the Palestinians.
