Iran Backs Palestine against US Ploys

The Islamic Republic has always taken measures to promote the rights of Palestinian people at any point in time that Palestine faced an adverse development, said Roknabadi in a Saturday meeting with the leader of the Free Patriotic Movement, Michel Aoun, in the Lebanese capital of Beirut.

He added that effective legal and political measures were adopted against “international Zionism” after Iran hosted four international conferences in defense of the Palestinians' rights, ISNA reported.

Roknabadi also extended an invitation by Iranian Majlis (parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani to Aoun to attend the 5th international conference in support of the Palestinian Intifada (uprising) against the Israeli regime, slated to be held in the Iranian capital of Tehran on October 1-2.

The Iranian diplomat also expressed the Islamic Republic's determination to support the Lebanese government and nation, saying Tehran is ready to take fundamental steps towards the expansion of mutual relations.

Aoun, for his part, said the resistance front in Lebanon is in a strong position both in the country and in the region.

He emphasized that the US is unable to impose its views on the front because it has lost its interests and power while providing the Israeli regime with unconditional support.

Meanwhile, in a meeting with former Lebanese Prime Minister Salim al-Hoss, the Iranian envoy pointed out that foreign policy of the Islamic Republic attaches significance to the interests of Islamic nations.

Roknabadi added that Iran will persist with its principled positions even though some countries tend to change their positions proportional to emerging political trends.

Despite regional and international pressure, Tehran will support the rights of the Palestinian people, he reiterated.

For his part, Hoss lauded Iran's stance on issues pertaining to the Muslim world, particularly Palestine, and said the Islamic Republic plays a leading role in countering hostile policies of the US and Israel toward Muslim nations.

Enhanced relations between Iran and Arab countries will strengthen the interests of the Muslim world, he concluded.
