Supporting Palestine, Every Muslim’s Duty: Iranian Speaker
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani described supporting the Palestinian people as a responsibility that lies with all Muslims around the world.
All Muslims with the sense of Islamic honor must support the people of Palestine, Larijani said in a telephone conversation with Ramadan Abdullah, the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, on Sunday.
“The Palestinian people’s struggle for restoration of their rights and defending their country’s cause has reached a critical point,” Larijani added.
He further reaffirmed Iran’s backing for Palestinians in the face of the Zionist regime’s policies.
For his part, Abdullah said the people of Palestine are fond of the Iranian people and leaders.
He also congratulated Larijani on his re-election as Iran’s parliament speaker.
Last week, Larijani was chosen by the Iranian lawmakers as the speaker of the 10th parliament.
