Iran will not stop support for Palestine

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has described supporting the rights of the Palestinian people as the unwavering strategy of the Islamic Republic, Press TV reports. 

“The Islamic Republic of Iran completely supports the rights of the Palestinian nation in all international circles,” Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with Acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday in Egypt’s capital, Cairo.

“Israel is in a position of weakness and if the resistance of nations and Palestinian groups continues, undoubtedly the future outlook of nations will be brighter,” Ahmadinejad added.

The Iranian chief executive described the recognition of a Palestinian state by the UN as a step forward, which has created a better opportunity to pursue the rights of the Palestinian nation more seriously.
