TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian lauded German officials for their realistic stance on the Middle-East.
“I had effective and fruitful talks with the German officials,” Amir Abdollahian told FNA on Saturday after returning from a visit to Berlin at the invitation of his counterpart Stephan Steinlein.
“The positions taken by the German officials on the developments in West Asia (Middle-East) and North Africa are close to reality and different from the positions taken by certain western states,” he added.
Amir Abdollahian said that during his visit to Berlin which started on Tuesday, he studied political solutions for providing assistance to the Palestinian people.
“In these meetings on the Gaza issue, it was underlined that the resistance weapon is based on the principle of legitimate defense in the international laws, and that Israel’s violation of the ceasefire and people’s rights in Gaza and the West Bank will exacerbate the situation,” he added.
The Israeli military aggression has taken the lives of more than 1,900 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and wounded nearly 11,000 others in Gaza since July 8.
The Tel Aviv regime has not even spared hospitals in its large-scale military offensive and continues to pound the medical centers that are in desperate need of medicine and equipment.
International bodies and human rights groups say civilians account for the majority of the victims of the ongoing Israeli war. Women and children make the bulk of the civilian casualties there.
