Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says the wave of Islamic Awakening in the region supports efforts made to help the liberation of Palestine.

“The wave of Islamic Awakening in the Muslim world, especially in regional countries, is a great opportunity and valuable potential for Palestine,” Salehi said in a meeting with the senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar in Tehran on Saturday.

The Iranian diplomat noted that with the establishment of popular governments in the Muslim countries of the region, the regional nations and countries will strongly continue their efforts to defend Palestine until the liberation of al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Referring to the successful Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Tehran, Salehi said Iran did its best to make the summit adopt powerful stances on Palestine and the final result of those efforts were quite favorable and materialized in the summit’s statement on Palestine.

The final resolution of the 16th NAM Summit called for greater efforts to support the Palestinian cause, expressed support for Iran’s nuclear energy program, and rejected the United States’ unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Al-Zahar, for his part, congratulated Mr. Salehi on the successful holding of the NAM summit by Iran, and expressed hope that during the presidency of the Islamic Republic, the Non-Aligned Movement would defend the rights of the Palestinian nation in international organizations stronger than before.

He emphasized that the Palestinian people will continue their resistance against the Zionist regime of Israel and will not withdraw from their rights and principals.

Al-Zahar also expressed gratitude over the full support of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and the Iranian government and nation for the Palestinian people.
