Zarif: Iran ready to accept Palestinian injured in its hospitals

Tehran, July 22, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran is ready to accept Palestinian injured in its hospitals.

Speaking in inter-parliamentary troika meeting of Parliamentary Union of Islamic Countries (PUIC) about situation in Palestine and military invasion of Gaza Strip, Zarif said,'I hope the meeting, which has been held to reach tactics to confront the Zionist regime in its invasion of Gaza, will be able to find practical tactics to end such tragic human disaster in Gaza Strip.'

He pointed out that the Zionist regime since more than two weeks ago by ignoring human principles and international laws and human rights principles by using the most advanced weapons had started invasion of Gaza by land, sea and air.

Zarif said that a large number of victims are children, women and adults and the Gaza Strip, because of its blockade, is facing with an intensive crisis for lack of medicine, medical services and relief aids.

He continued that continuation of the situation will bring a catastrophe in the area, which surely would not be acceptable for the world community.

Zarif stressed that in such situation a big responsibility is on the shoulders of world community and related international organizations, especially the UN Security Council and High Commission for Human Rights as well as all supporting bodies of peace-loving countries to prompt cease of the Zionist regime invasion of Gaza and removing blockade of the area and reopening all passing points and creation of a sustainable mechanism for dispatching international humanitarian aids for Gaza Strip.

Iran's senior diplomat added that Iran is fully ready to send humanitarian aids such as relief equipment, medicine and foodstuff to Gaza, immediately, but because of blockade it is not possible.

He praised initiative and efforts of Islamic inter-parliamentary union secretariat and Majlis in holding such important meeting and wished success for the meeting.

Zarif continued that Iran's Foreign Ministry and Government are fully ready for every kind of cooperation with PUIC in direction of an effective move to cease immediately the invasion of the Zionist regime and full removal of blockade of Gaza Strip and help to hero nation of Palestine.

At the end of this meeting on Tuesday afternoon, Turkey's parliament Speaker Jamil Chichek proposed one day national mourning in Islamic states to be declared and Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, in this concern, offered the day to be declared on next Friday, which is World Day of Quds, and participants in the meeting supported the idea.
