TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The so-called Middle East peace talks in which the Palestinian side does not even dare to talk about the establishment of a country are harmful to the Palestinian cause and need to be halted immediately, a prominent Lebanese analyst said.
Speaking to Tasnim on Wednesday, Hamzeh al-Haaj Hassan stated that the Palestinian side has participated in these talks from a weak stance.
The compromise (peace) talks need to be halted as soon as possible, as they are not in line with the Palestinian nation's cause, he added.
He pointed to the current conditions in the regional Arab states, Egypt in particular, and noted that the resumption of talks only serves the interests of the Zionist enemy.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on August 8 lashed out at Washington for its efforts to revive the so-called Middle East peace talks, and stressed that talks will result in undermining the Palestinians' rights.
“No doubt that these talks, like the previous negotiations, will yield no result but undermining the Palestinians’ rights and encouraging further crimes and oppression by the (Zionist) aggressor," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Ayatollah Khamenei further condemned the US blind support for the Zionist regime, and stated that the US-Israeli plots will definitely be against the interests of Palestinians.
The Leader also called on the Islamic states to oppose this “intensive oppression” and the criminal acts by the Zionists and their international supporters.
