TEHRAN(Basirat): Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Friday that despite all conspiracies and fabricated crises, Palestine will continue to remain the first issue of the Islamic world until its complete liberation.

Palestine was ancillary to the satisfaction of the American rulers and

"It’s regrettable that an Arab and Islamic
country describes an old ulcer on the body of the Islamic world as a
side issue and be unable to recognize the simplest global issues in such
an unwise manner and put under hammer credibility of its country and
nation with such baseless and cheap remarks,” Qasemi said.
plots and complicated machinations and creation of crises and
fabricated threats on behalf of the US-Zionism axis, Palestine will
continue to remain the first issue of the Islamic World, as it is part
Muslims' body and nobody can distract Islamic nations' attention from
the significant issue, he added.
In a collective act of defiance
toward Washington, the United Nations General Assembly voted 128 to 9,
with 35 abstentions, for a resolution to demand that the United States
rescind its Dec. 6 declaration to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to
al-Quds, the contested occupied holy city.
Late on Monday US vetoed Egyptian-drafted resolution on al-Quds in a session of UN Security Council.
a non-permanent member of the UNSC presented a draft resolution
condemning any move to change status of the Holy Quds, without naming a
certain country or condemning any state. Egypt also urged all countries
to refrain from moving their embassies to the Holy Quds.
The draft resolution won positive votes of 14 UNSC member states but failed to be approved due to US opposition.
