Zarif: Iran to keep supporting Palestinians

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in a meeting with Secretary General of Palestinian Islamic Jihad Ziyad Rashid al-Nakhalah, underlined that his country will keep supporting the Palestinian people against Israel.

Nakhalah appreciated Iran for its real support for the Palestinian cause, and said the resistance front now enjoys higher capacities and capabilities against the aggressors compared to the past, according to the Foreign Ministry’s official website.

He also blasted attempts by some Arab and Western states to weaken the resistance, and said, "The Palestinian people will continue their path with a stronger resolve until full victory."

Iran has always supported the Palestinian people and denounced Israeli occupation of their lands.

The meeting came days after the Iranian foreign minister held a meeting with a Palestinian parliamentary delegation led by senior Palestinian lawmaker, Mahmoud al-Zahar, in Tehran.

During the meeting, Zarif urged all countries in the Muslim world to boost their unity to defend the Palestinian cause.

"We hope that some Muslim countries that have pinned their hopes on the support of the Zionists and the US will return to the Muslim world and realize that the Zionists are not a trustworthy friend or partner for anybody," Zarif said.

The Iranian foreign minister added that efforts to counter the Palestinian resistance are unfortunately being made from inside the Muslim world, saying that all countries and Islamic movements are also under such pressure.
