Iran FM warns OIC of Israeli plot to ‘destroy Palestine’

Tehran, IRNA - Addressing an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Jeddah, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said “unprecedented” Israeli crimes in the Gaza Strip prove the Zionist regime “is deliberately pursuing the policy of destroying the Palestinian nation.”

“In a situation where we are once again witnessing the inability of the UN Security Council to deal with the oldest and most bitter humanitarian crisis in contemporary history, the consensus of Islamic countries to find practical ways and take more serious measures to support the Palestinian people and help find a way out of the status quo in this land is very urgent and necessary,” Amirabdollahian told the OIC’s Council of Foreign Ministers in Jeddah on Tuesday.

Iran’s top diplomat warned that the ongoing genocide and dire humanitarian situation in Gaza, as well as atrocities in the West Bank, have reached “unprecedented” levels of disaster. 

He further said that Washington’s blatant obstruction of the UN Security Council measures to prevent the Israeli aggression in Gaza shows that relying on the US to “prevent the ongoing genocide is an illusion and more of a diplomatic joke".

The US is an accomplice and partner in crimes of the Israeli regime, Amirabdollahian said, adding that the “crocodile tears” by some American officials over the humanitarian situation in Gaza “do not change the reality.”

He pointed out that the United States, through its unwavering support for Israel, is practically giving the Zionist regime a “green light” to go ahead with a planned military invasion of Rafah, where more than half of Gaza's population is now crammed into the southern city bordering Egypt.

Undoubtedly, the foreign minister told the OIC, that any economic and financial relations with the Israeli regime amounts to “facilitating the continuation of its heinous acts” against the Palestinians. He further urged for a broader boycott of products manufactured by Israeli companies.

Amirabdollahian stressed that under the current circumstances it is imperative for the OIC to “take decisive and effective practical measures to support the Palestinians".

“This is our human and Islamic duty towards our Palestinian brothers and sisters. Preventing a new disaster against the Palestinian nation is a complete and immediate necessity,” he said.
