Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif underlined Tehran’s principled policy on Palestine, stressing that the country’s position has not changed toward the Palestinian issue.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s position on the Palestinian issue has been based on a principled policy since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and is still the same. It is not just a political position and is not affected by secondary issues,” Zarif said in a meeting with Hamas representative in Iran, Khalid al-Qoddoumi, in Tehran on Monday, Fars News Agency reported.

Qoddoumi briefed Zarif on the chaotic situation in Beit-ul-Moqaddas, West Bank and Gaza Strip and said, “Palestinians have risen to defend the Al-Aqsa mosque and are fighting against the daily crimes of the Zionist regime. The intifada continues despite the tight security measures.”

Qoddoumi underlined that the Palestinian issue is a humanitarian, political and security issue, and regretted that some describe it as a charitable issue, which damages the Palestinian cause and nature.
