Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian, said his country will defend the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people in the XVI Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), which is being held these days in Tehran, the capital of Iran.
Hossein Amir Abdollahian reiterated that Iran always support the Resistance in Palestine in particular the efforts of jihadists fighting groups like Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) and the Islamic Jihad Movement of Palestine. Iran supplies political support and weapons to Hamas, an organization committed to the destruction of Israel by Jihad. According to Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian National Authority, “Hamas is funded by Iran. It claims it is financed by donations, but the donations are nothing like what it receives from Iran.”
Also Amir Abdollahian praised the unity among Palestinian parties against Israel which is part of foreign policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Recently Iranians officials including Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami and Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader called for the annihilation of the “Zionist regime”.
