Legitimacy Crisis is ‘Israel’s’ Biggest Challenge - Zarif
By Staff, Agencies
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described the issue of "legitimacy crisis" as the biggest challenge for the ‘Israeli’ occupying regime.
Zarif made the description while speaking to the Islamic Radios and Televisions Union early on Thursday on the eve of International Quds Day slated for May 22.
Palestine is an important matter for the World of Islam, so the Islamic Republic attaches great importance to the Palestinian people's rights as the Islamic Revolution is dependent on the World of Islam and cares for what happens in this world, Zarif said.
Zarif said that ‘Israeli’ stockpiling of weapons of mass destruction and warheads are of major concerns for the peace and security of the international community and the the regional countries.
Asked whether the international organizations or the UN Security Council have fulfilled their duty regarding the issue of Palestine and the ‘Israeli’ crimes against Palestinians, Zarif said there are different resolutions passed by the United Nations Security Council to condemn the ‘Israeli’ crimes, urging the occupying entity to terminate occupation and war crimes, but, the ‘Israeli’ occupying regime did not take heed of them.
Zarif further censured the US Middle East policies which all follow the interests of the Zionist regime.
All Muslim countries have duty to support the Palestinians, he stressed.
International Quds Day, which is marked on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, is being held worldwide online this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei is to deliver a speech addressing the Muslim world on that day.
