Iran Sunni cleric criticizes US full support for Zionist regime

Tehran, Jan 31, IRNA – Top Iranian Sunni cleric criticized the US support for the Zionist regime and Washington's recognition of Holy Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of that regime.

'Even based on democratic (standards) claimed by powers and the UN, the Palestinian citizens themselves should choose their capital and no one else has the right to decide for them,' a top member of the Supreme Council of the World Forum for Proximity of the Islamic Schools of Thought, Molavi Eshaq Madani said at the international conference dubbed 'Quds: Capital of Peace of Religions' underway in the Iranian capital, Tehran.

US President Donald Trump's Dec 6 announcement to recognize Quds as the capital city of Israel has faced extensive criticisms all over the world even from the US allies.

Following the decision by the US, clashes erupted in the occupied lands and thousands of Palestinians were injured and several others were killed.
