Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi
Iran’s foreign minister says the Islamic Republic will stand on the side of the Palestinians until Palestine’s complete liberation from Israeli occupation.

Ali Akbar Salehi said on Wednesday that the Iranian nation and government would keep up their all-out and unlimited support for the people of Palestine until the freedom of the occupied territories.

Israel proclaimed existence in 1948 after full-scale military operations against the Arab world.

In 1967, Tel Aviv occupied and later annexed the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem) in a move not recognized by the international law.

Palestinians hail East al-Quds as the promised capital of any potential Palestinian state, while Tel Aviv has laid claim to the entire al-Quds as its capital.

Israel and the United States are, meanwhile, preparing to stonewall the Palestinian Authority’s plan to request the United Nations membership in September.
