TEHRAN (Tasnim) – In a conversation with the chief of the political bureau of Islamic resistance movement Hamas, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian assured the Palestinian people of Iran’s continued support, and denounced the Zionist regime as the root cause of problems in the region.
In the telephone conversation on Tuesday evening, Amirabdollahian congratulated Hamas political Bureau Chief Ismail Haniyeh on the founding anniversary of the movement and reaffirmed the Islamic Republic’s continued support for the resistance of the Palestinian people.
He also described the Hamas resistance movement as a pioneer in the liberation of the holy city of Quds, saying, “Today, the resistance plays a pivotal role in realizing the historical rights of the Palestinian people.”
Amirabdollahian then referred to the British government’s recent move to blacklist Hamas as a terrorist group, describing the decision as politically-motivated and against the Palestinian people, the Foreign Ministry’s website reported.
“The fake Zionist regime is the mother of all calamities and the root cause of problems in the region and, therefore, the few regional countries that move toward normalizing ties with this fabricated regime are acting against the security and interests of the region and the Muslim ummah,” he stated.
For his part, the Hamas official thanked Amirabdollahian for congratulating the anniversary of the movement’s establishment and hailed the noble personality of martyred General Qassem Soleimani.
He said, “We remember General Soleimani with honor and we appreciate the Islamic Republic of Iran’s support for the Palestinian cause and resistance all through the years following the Islamic Revolution’s victory.”
Hanieyh also condemned the move by some regional countries to normalize ties with the Zionist regime, calling it an American-Zionist approach. “We did not like the doors of Arab countries to be opened to the Zionist murderers who have the blood of the Palestinian people on their hands.”
The head of Hamas political bureau said the Zionist regime’s infiltration into the region will cause insecurity and instability and poses a threat to the Palestinian cause and the whole Islamic ummah.
Haniyeh added that this strategy is doomed to failure because the will of regional nations is stronger and can beat such approaches.
Haniyeh finally extended his and the Palestinian people’s warm greetings to the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution and the Iranian president.
