The head of the Intifada (Palestinian uprising) and Quds Center at Iran’s Islamic Propagation Coordination Council said resolving the Palestinian issue is crucial in promoting unity among Muslim nations.

“Despite extensive attempts and numerous plots by the global arrogance (the West) and international Zionism in diverting public attention from the crimes of the Zionists, Palestine is still the core issue of the Islamic world,” Ramezan Sharif said in a speech in Tehran on Tuesday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

He pointed to the upcoming International Quds Day, an annual event held to show solidarity with the oppressed Palestinians, and said “the glorious day” provides an opportunity for the Muslim community every year to condemn the occupying Zionist regime of Israel and its oppression of Palestinians.

Sharif said one important feature of Quds Day is that it prevents the issue of Palestine from sliding into oblivion.

The event is seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who in 1979 officially declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day.
