A lawmaker said Iran’s stance on the Palestinian issue is a democratic approach consistent with international law, which involves holding a referendum with the participation of all Palestinians, Christians and Jews, including the refugees. Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said,  “As the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has suggested, Iran neither believes in war nor in a two-state solution which would legitimize the occupying Zionist regime,” IRNA reported.

Speaking at a meeting of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC) in Tehran, Boroujerdi said he hoped Muslim and Arab countries would all adopt Iran’s stance in the near future as a unified way to address the Palestinian issue.

He also praised the unanimous stance of the Muslim world against the US recognition of Beit-ul-Moqaddas as the capital of Israel, adding that the strong condemnation led to other non-Muslim countries to denounce the move as well.

The Leader has previously said, “[Iran] proposes a referendum among the Palestinian people. All the original people of Palestine—including Muslims, Christians, Jews, and indigenous inhabitants—should take part in a general and orderly referendum to determine the future of Palestine.”
