TEHRAN (Tasnim) – President of Iran Hassan Rouhani called on the international community to support the Palestinian nation and take collective action against the Israeli regime.
In a message to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, Rouhani reaffirmed Iran’s support for Palestine in the course of struggle for freedom.
The oppressed Palestinian people have suffered under the Zionist regime’s occupation for more than seven decades, the Iranian president said in the message, released on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
Israel, he added, has also intensified its racist policies and organized crimes against the Palestinians through pushing ahead with the annexation scheme, killing the innocent and keeping up sanctions against the people of Gaza amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Israeli occupation has brought about tragic consequences, among them more than five million Palestinian refugees, the expansion of settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem al-Quds, the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians and the cruel blockade of the Gaza Strip, Rouhani said, Press TV reported.
Tel Aviv has further taken extensive measures to change the demographic and geographical status of occupied Jerusalem al-Quds by supporting the Zionist extremists in violating the Palestinians’ rights and the forcible eviction of non-Jewish people, he noted.
Such an approach, the president said, is meant to Judaize Jerusalem al-Quds and destroy its historical and Islamic characteristics in order to fully occupy the Palestinian lands and prevent its people from returning to their homeland.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that these measures not only drastically deteriorate the situation in the occupied territories, but also have grave regional and international security consequences,” Rouhani noted.
“Unfortunately, all of these actions take place while the international community has not taken any effective measures to end this tragedy and restore the rights of defenseless Palestine people,” he added.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran urges international community to take action against such illegal measures taken by the child-killer regime of Israel, which flagrantly violates human rights as well as the resolutions of the United Nations,” he stressed.
The Iranian president also referred to the normalization deals Israel has recently signed with regional states, saying they are “artificial agreements” on bilateral ties, which were established previously and were lately revealed.
The peace pacts, he said, are considered “a betrayal to the Palestinian cause” and are condemned by Iran and all Palestinians
“It is our firm belief that a just solution for the issue of Palestine cannot be achieved through the normalization of relations with the Israeli regime,” Rouhani said.
