The Iranian Parliament speaker's special advisor on international affairs, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, told reporters in the Lebanese capital Beirut on Tuesday after a meeting with Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil. Amir-Abdollahian emphasized that the just cause of Palestine must always be the leading and focal issue of the Muslim and Arab world. “The prime minister of the Zionist regime [of Israel], Benjamin Netanyahu, must never be allowed to…take advantage of the regional and international conditions to target the Palestinian people and the sanctities in Palestine and to increase its oppression and crimes against the Palestinian people,” Amir-Abdollahian, who is also the secretary general of the International Conference in Support of the Palestinian Intifada stressed. Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian official also stressed that he had held “good and constructive” political talks with the Lebanese foreign minister about the current developments in the region, particularly in Syria and Palestine. Amir-Abdollahian concluded by saying that Iran had full confidence in the political wisdom of the Lebanese authorities in all fields such as the fight against terrorism and extremism. It is worthy to mention that Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Revolution in his historic speeches and messages had recommended the senior Iranian officials and the authorities of all Muslim countries to pursue the issue of Palestine at international level and forums. Imam also exposed crimes being committed by the Israeli regime against oppressed nation of Palestine. The contemporary leader of the Muslim world also declared the last Friday from holy month of Ramadan as “International Quds Day” to show solidarity with the Palestinian people.
