Speaker Reiterates Iran's Support for Palestinian Cause
(FNA)- Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in a meeting with Palestinian Foreign Minister Mohamed Awad stressed that support for the oppressed Palestinian nation is the focal point in Iran's foreign policy.
Iran always stands by the Palestinians and supports them to achieve their goals, Larijani said on Sunday.
Larijani underlined that Iran's stance is based on the policy of supporting resistance against the Zionist regime.
The Iranian speaker further underscored that Iran's main concern is Palestine and vindication of the rights of its oppressed people.
During the meeting, the Palestinian minister appreciated the Iranian government and nation for their support for the Palestinian nation and said Iranians have always stood by their Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine.
Earlier, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei stressed Iran's direct involvement in the Palestinian and Lebanese confrontation against Israel, including the Lebanese Summer 2006 33-day resistance against the Zionist regime.
"Wherever Iran interferes, it announces it in a very straightforward manner. For instance, we interfered in confrontations against Israel, which resulted in the (Lebanese) victory in the 33-day war and (Palestinians' victory in) the 22-day (Gaza) war," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing millions of Friday Prayers worshippers on Tehran University Campus in February.
"In future too, we will support and help everyone who opposes the Zionist regime," the Leader underscored.
"The Zionist regime is a real cancerous tumor that should be cut and will be cut, God Willing," Ayatollah Khamenei underscored.
