“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.
