TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday cautioned Muslim countries about the Zionist regime and arrogant powers’ conspiracies against al-Quds and urged them to be united against enemy plots.
Referring to the US planned move to recognize Quds as the Zionist regime’s capital, Rouhani said Muslims should be united against this big conspiracy and the Palestinian people should stand up against such a move with more courage.
The president made the remarks in a meeting of top Iranian officials, ambassadors of Islamic countries to Iran, and participants in a conference on Muslim unity with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, held in Tehran on Wednesday.
Rouhani described the US possible move as the Zionists and global arrogance’s new adventurism in the region.
He said that Quds belongs to all Muslims and Palestinians and reminded Islamic countries and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)’s heavy responsibility regarding the issue.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran… will not tolerate the arrogant powers’ violation of Islamic sanctities,” the president added.
Ayatollah Khamenei, in the same gathering, said the decision by the enemies of Islam to recognize Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime results from impotence and frustration.
“The Islamic world will definitely stand against this plot and the Zionists will receive a bigger blow in that case (if Quds is announced as the capital of occupied Palestine),” Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
“Dear Palestine will be undoubtedly liberated at last,” the Leader added, stressing that the issue of Palestine is the paramount political subject in the Muslim world.
US President Donald Trump is expected to formally recognize Quds as Israel’s capital and begin preparations to move the US embassy to the city, three senior US administration officials confirmed late Tuesday.
