Iran envoy urges Muslim nations to support Palestinians

June 9, 2018

Ambassador of Iran to Pakistan says that Muslim nations should unite to express solidarity with the Palestinian people against illegitimate occupation of Zionist regime.

Mehdi Honardoost in an article published in daily Nawa-e-Waqt added that unfortunately Muslims today are passing through a difficult phase and unrest can be seen in many Islamic countries especially in Middle East.

The diplomat said that no about that the enemies of Islam are behind creating problems in the Muslim world to weaken Ummah. He said that hands of enemies of Islam can be seen in wars in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Afghanistan.

Mehdi Honardoost noted that almost 70 years have passed since the illegal occupation of Palestinian land by the Zionists.

He said that it is very unfortunate that at this moment US President Donald Trump has announced to relocate American embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem, an unwise decision which is against all international laws and norms.

The ambassador said that this decision is an open support of the US for the Zionist regime against the oppressed Palestinians. He went on to say that the US move hurt the sentiments of Muslims all over the world.

He said imperialist forces through a conspiracy have created internal conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Afghanistan to protect the interests of Zionist regime.

He said that Muslims have to unite for the cause of Palestine adding that founder of Islamic Revolution late Imam Khomeini has named last Friday of Ramadan as Al-Quds day to expose the support of imperialist forces and criminal silence of international organizations on the atrocities of Zionist regime against innocent Palestinians.

“Al-Quds day is not only related to Palestinian people but it is a global Islamic day,” he said.

He said Al-Quds is a symbol of unity for the Muslim world on which Muslims and even non-Muslims show solidarity with the Palestinian people against illegitimate occupation of Zionist regime.

The ambassador added that it is obligatory on all nations, societies, especially Muslim countries to encourage international organizations to protect the rights of oppressed Palestinians.
