TEHRAN, Dec. 22 (Press Shia) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said on Thursday that the Palestine will remain the key issue of the Muslim world forever.

In a statement on Thursday, Ghasemi lashed out at Bahrain’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Khalid Bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa, for calling al-Quds a “side issue”, saying the Bahraini foreign minister makes such remarks to please the American and Zionist rulers.

“It is so regrettable that an Arab and Muslim country refers to a seven-decade-old wound on the injured body of Muslim world as a ‘side issue’, and is still unable to understand the most simple issues of the world in such an unwise way,” he noted.

Ghasemi added that such cheap and groundless remarks would just destroy and tarnish the reputation and image of Bahrain and its people at the global level.

Ghasemi emphasized “despite all complicated plots and conspiracies and the fabricated threats and crises created by the American-Zionist axis, Palestine has remained the top issue of Muslim world and an inseparable part of it and will remain so until its full liberation.”

“No individual, country, and topic can distract the Muslim society’s attention from this crucial issue,” Ghasemi noted.
