Iran president rules out US mediation efforts in region

Tehran, Dec 13, IRNA – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani dismissed the mediation efforts by the US in the region, saying they were aimed at benefiting Israel.

“The recent decision by the US administration made it clear that the US is only seeking to secure the maximum interests of the Zionists and has no respect for the legitimate rights of Palestinians. The US has never been an honest mediator and will never be,” Rouhani said in a Twitter message released on Wednesday.

The US president's Dec 6 announcement to recognize Beit-ul Moqaddas (Holy Quds) as the capital city the of Israeli regime has faced extensive criticism all over the world even from the US allies.
