Iran’s VP urges int’l bodies to help end bloodshed of Gazans

Tehran, IRNA – Iran’s Vice-president Mohammad Mokhber has called on international organizations to put high on their agendas an immediate end to the Zionist regime’s bloodshed of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and try to lift the blockade of the territory and send humanitarian aid there.

Mokhber was speaking on Thursday in Bishkek, the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, where he attended the 22nd Meeting of the Council of Heads of Government of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

The top Iranian official began his speech with the Gaza war, calling it the most important global and humanitarian issue.

He said that the Zionist regime has clearly displayed its evil nature and sinister goals through its “inhumane actions” against the innocent people of Gaza.

“This regime is taking revenge on civilians in Gaza for its defeat on the battlefield. In a shameful act, it has cut off water, food, fuel, electricity, and medicines to Gaza, a measure that amounts to a war crime and crime against humanity,” Mokhber told participants at the meeting.

Bringing an immediate end to the bloodshed of the innocent people in Gaza, sending humanitarian aid and lifting the blockade of the territory should be high on the agendas of international bodies, the Iranian official said.

He continued his speech by talking about the role the Islamic Republic can play in the new world order that is based on multilateralism, highlighting the fields in which the country can contribute to efforts to achieve set goals.

Transit corridors, economy, newly-emerged technologies, the environment, climate, food security, energy security, as well as fighting terrorism and extremism were the issues Mokhber raised which Iran can join or enhance global and regional cooperation in.

He put forward proposals on how to resolve existing problems in some of those areas, such as water crises and food threats caused by climate change.

The Iranian official’s proposals also included formation of some funds and use of new technologies such as artificial intelligence to achieve high goals, as well as the use of local currencies instead of the dollar in order to boost trade.

To protect regional security, the Iranian official said that regional countries should use the “huge capacities of neighborliness and integration” in order to decrease the influence of “foreign powers” and achieve their goal of creating a region devoid of terrorism, extremism, and separatism.

The SCO is an intergovernmental international organization, which was established in June 2001. Iran joined the organization in July 2005, holding an observer status until the same month in 2023 when it became a full member.
