Iranian minister: Compromise over Palestinians’ rights impossible

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Culture Minister Ali Jannati underscored that Tehran would never withdraw even for an inch from defending the rights of freedom-seeking nations, specially the Palestinians.

“Iran will never compromise on the rights of free nations, Palestinians in particular,” Jannati said, addressing the opening ceremony of a movie in Southern Beirut.

He also underlined the deep-rooted relations between Iran and Lebanon.
Iranians feel respect for Lebanon which is home to great people like Seyed Hassan Nasrallah whose love is in the hearts of all Lebanese, either Christians or Muslims, Jannati added.

In relevant remarks in January, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian reaffirmed Iran’s continued support for the oppressed Palestinian nation.

“Iran will spare no effort to support Palestine and the Palestinian resistance movement,” Amir Abdollahian said in a meeting with a senior member of the Hamas politburo, Jamal Issa, in Tehran.

He reiterated that the issue of Palestine had always topped agenda of Iran’s foreign policy, and said, “Iran has always had an established stance on the resistance movements in Palestine.”

The Iranian deputy foreign minister noted that Iran had never been, nor would it ever be, negligent in supporting Palestine and resistance movements.

“The fate of Palestine and al-Quds is of utmost significance to Iran,” Amir Abdollahian said.

The Palestinian official, for his part, appreciated Iran’s support for the Palestinian cause, describing it as “valuable”.

Issa called on all Muslim and Arab countries to stand up against Tel Aviv’s expansionist policies and plans to Judaize the holy city.
