Iran relations with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, at best possible level - Mehmanparast

Tehran, Dec 11, IRNA – Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that Iran's relations with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad are at the best possible levels.

Ramin Mehmanparast made the remarks while talking to reporters at his weekly news conference.

Referring to the western media's unfounded claims regarding Tehran's ties with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, Mehmanparast said such moves are resulted from the failure of the Zionist regime in its recent war against Gaza.

They cannot tolerate another victory of the Palestinian people, added the senior diplomat.

Mehmanparast stressed that the Islamic Republic of Iran has always stood by the Palestinians during their difficult days, adding, support for the resistance movement of the Palestinians against the Zionist regime is a priority of Iran's foreign policy.
