Through every possible means, there is a need to join hands to prevent the enforcement of such an unintelligent US act, Iranian President Rouhani said while addressing the OIC extraordinary summit on Jerusalem issue in Istanbul, APA reported citing IRNA.
The United States has never been an honest mediator, noted Rouhani.
“The recent act by the US administration made it clear for the people who wished a positive role by the US in resolving the issue of Palestine that the US is only seeking to secure the maximum interests of the Zionists and consider no respect for the legitimate demands of Palestinians,” said Iran’s president.
Rouhani said today it is no secret that the biggest enemy of the Jews is not the Muslims and Arabs but the dangerous project of Zionism.
“We Muslims, Christians and the Jews are the historical owners of this region. The Zionists however are stranger here and have imposed themselves on this region,” he added.
Rouhani called for condemnation of such an act by the US.
“It is necessary for this summit to strongly condemn the recent decision by the US administration to recognize al-Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime and move its embassy to the holy Quds. The US administration should be aware of the reality that the world of Islam does not remain indifferent towards the fate of Palestine and the holy Quds. It is only through Islamic unity that we can better support the rights of the Islamic Ummah and the holy Quds,” he said.
The issue of Palestine should once again be placed top on the agenda of the Muslim world, added the Iranian president.
The Islamic Republic of Iran stands ready to cooperate with each one of the Muslim countries to defend the holy Quds without any reservation or pre-condition, Rouhani concluded.
