Iran Urges Muslim Action to Break Siege of Gaza

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The foreign minister of Iran called on Islamic countries to push for lifting the blockade that the Israeli regime has imposed on the Gaza Strip and show a serious reaction to Israel’s war crimes.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and his Kuwaiti counterpart Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah discussed the developments in Palestine in a telephone conversation on Tuesday.

Pointing to the spontaneous resistance against the occupation of the Zionist regime, Amirabdollahian emphasized the necessity for the solidarity of Islamic countries and stressed that Islamic governments must be serious about breaking the siege of Gaza and reacting to this war crime.

He also called for a meeting of the foreign ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation as soon as possible, expressing Iran’s readiness to host the meeting.

Amirabdollahian further underlined the need to send drinking water and food to the Gaza Strip as soon as possible.

He also emphasized Tehran’s perspective regarding the necessity of taking a strong position in condemning the war crimes of the usurping Zionist regime and ending the regime’s inhuman blockade of Gaza by the Arab League.

The Kuwaiti foreign minister, for his part, emphasized the constant defense of the oppressed Palestinian people, and said, “After the Saturday events, Kuwait's Foreign Ministry issued a statement about it. What is important now is that all parties try to prevent the expansion of the circle of war while reducing tensions and saving the lives of civilians.”

“In today's meeting between the countries of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council and the European Union in Muscat, it was emphasized that in the current situation, it is necessary to reduce tensions. We and all those who are concerned about the Palestinian people and their rights must do their best to reduce the tension,” he added.

Regarding the OIC meeting, he stated, “Kuwait supports any effort to establish peace in Gaza and supports any meeting in this regard.”
