Rouhani: Zionists not to feel world silent viewers of its crimes

Tehran, July 12, IRNA – Gaza status is extremely sensitive; Islamic countries and NAM must participate to stop Gaza catastrophe; Zionist regime should not feel that world is silently watching its criminal acts, Iranian president told his Indonesian counterpart.

'A great human catastrophe is taking place in Gaza which is very horrendous and calls for Islamic countries' close cooperation with each other and using the entire existing capacities aimed at putting an end to aggressions and war against the Gaza residents,' said President Hassan Rouhani in his phone talk with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Referring to the high pressure and unleashed brutalities unleashed against the defenseless women and children of Palestine in Gaza, President Rouhani reiterated, 'under such extraordinary conditions prevailing for the Palestinian Muslim people the whole Islamic countries should use any capability they have in their disposal to prevent the continuation of that catastrophe.'

Emphasizing the need for collective efforts by the group of Islamic countries to prevent the continuation of the aggressions and inhumane brutalities of the racist Zionists, the president stressed, 'I believe the solid voice of the Islamic countries can make the aggressors realize that the continuation of aggressions will not be to their benefit.'

The president noted that Palestine has always been the pivot of unity of the Muslims and the shared worries of the Islamic world and Indonesia has throughout the past decades been one of the Islamic countries that defend the rights of the Palestinian people.

Stressing the need for using the Islamic world's entire capacities to end the continuation of the inhumane acts of the racist Zionist regime, Dr. Rouhani expressed hope that all the Non Aligned Movement and Islamic countries will make joint efforts aimed at blocking the path for the occurrence of a greater catastrophe.

Elsewhere in his talks with his Indonesian counterparts the Iranian president said that Indonesia was a powerful friend country, announcing the Islamic Republic of Iran's readiness for evermore expansion of comprehensive relations with that country.

The Indonesian president, too, said in the phone talk that his nation and him, too were worried about the prevailing conditions in Gaza and that he was fully agreed with Dr. Rouhani's comments on Gaza.

'We should through cooperation with each other make moves to lead to ending the war and aggressions in Gaza as soon as possible and I believe Your Excellency, as the head of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) countries, can shoulder the leadership of this move and in collaboration with the regional countries put an end to the war and aggressions in Gaza,' he said.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono furthermore reiterated that Indonesia fully supports Iran, as the rotating head of the NAM, in any effort aimed at promoting Islamic unity and solidarity.
