Rouhani: US president’s error made Muslims united on Palestine, Quds

Tehran, Dec 19, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that US President Donald Trump’s wrong move made the Muslims further united on Quds and Palestine, “as today we witness' new Intifada and movement by the Palestinian nation against the 'Zionist regime'.

Addressing a session of High Council of Cultural Revolution, he said in his report on the extraordinary meeting of OIC Summit in Istanbul that leaders of the countries attending the event spoke out against the US’ and Zionist regime’s new plot with harsh tone, which was unprecedented.

“US president’ error in moving the country’s embassy to the holy Quds made Muslims further united on the issue of Palestine and Quds and restored the issue of Quds to its real status, which has been relegated to a second place in recent years due to the scourge of terrorism in the region,” he said.

“This was a conspiracy against Palestine, Quds and Islamic world, which has so far backfired on its orchestrators, as today we witness a new Intifada and movement by the Palestinian nation against the Zionist regime,” he said.

Elsewhere in his speech, Rouhani hailed founding anniversary of the High Council of Cultural Revolution, calling on the cultural body to strive for meeting the society’s expectations and improve academic situation.
