Palestine top priority of Muslim world

Iran has once again reiterated the significance of Palestine for all Muslim nations, rejecting any compromise with the apartheid regime of Israel on the Palestinian cause.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh made the comment in a post on his official twitter account on Tuesday after taking part in the 48th session of the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Islamabad, Pakistan.

"Palestine is & will remain top priority of Muslim world & no one can compromise on the cause w the apartheid regime of Israel," the Iranian official tweeted.

He also stressed the importance of reinforcing unity among Muslim nations in the face of crises in countries like Afghanistan and Yemen.

"From Yemen to Afghanistan the Islamic world's unity is the key to address the crises," Khatibzadeh said.

The two-day high-level meeting of the OIC opened in Islamabad on Tuesday under the theme of "Building Partnerships for Unity, Justice, and Development".  Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan delivered a keynote address at the inaugural session.

Khatibzadeh is participating in the forum at the head of a high-ranking delegation on behalf of Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Iranian official held a meeting with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

Iran has always emphasized that Palestine should be the foremost issue of the Muslim world and that all Muslim nations should strengthen their unity and establish stronger relations to counter the occupying regime of Israel.

In a meeting with the new Palestinian ambassador to Tehran, Salam al-Zawawi, in February, Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi warned Arab countries against the adverse consequences of normalizing ties with the Israeli regime.

Normalization of ties with Israel will add to regional problems: Raeisi warns Arab govts.

“The move by some Arab countries to establish relations with the Zionist regime (Israel) will not only fail to ensure their protection and security, but will also double the problems of these states and those of the region and [other] Arab countries,” Raeisi said.
