In a meeting with Secretary General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance
movement Ziad al-Nakhala in Tehran on Tuesday evening, Rouhani said Iran has
been a staunch supporter of the Palestinian nation ever since the 1979
Revolution, led by late Imam Khomeini.
He then praised the Palestinian nation’s 70-year-long steadfastness in the face of Zionists’ expropriation, injustice and occupation, stating that their struggle should continue until the Tel Aviv regime acknowledges their rights.
"The Zionist regime (of Israel), thanks to support from the new rulers of the White House, is seeking to assert control over the entire (Middle East) region; and Palestine is a part of such a complex plot,” the Iranian president noted.
Nakhala, for his part, briefed the Iranian president on the latest developments in the occupied Palestinian lands, and the capabilities of Palestinian resistance groups.
"Undoubtedly, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s support and principled policies have played a major role in thwarting attempts aimed at stripping the Palestinian nation of their rights,” he pointed out.
Nakhala also highlighted that the Palestinian nation, irrespective of ongoing pressures and threats, will continue its resistance against the Israeli regime until all its rights are recognized.
