Zarif invites counterparts to attend NAM Palestine Committee emergency meeting

Tehran, July 28, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday sent separate messages to his counterparts in the Palestine Committee of the Non-Aligned Movement member states to attend an emergency meeting on Gaza due to be held in Tehran next week.

In his messages, the foreign minister condemned the ongoing crimes against humanity in Gaza by the Zionist regime.

The depth of the disaster in Gaza requires the international community, particularly the Non-Aligned Movement to act urgently to end the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, Zarif said.

The Zionist regime launched a major offensive on Gaza on July 8 which has killed more than 1000 people, mostly civilians, wounding nearly 6000 so far. The aggression has also left many thousands displaced.
