Speaker: Palestinian problem - ''strategic issue for Iran''
Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad Adel Saturday termed the Palestinian problem as a "strategic issue for Iran," stressing the 7th Majlis would do its utmost to support the "brave but oppressed Palestinians."
In a meeting with Palestinian Ambassador to Tehran Salah Zawawi, Haddad Adel said Iran regards the Palestinian issue as the symbol of struggles of the Islamic world against the West's atrocities, IRNA reported.
He added the ruling of the International Court of Justice in The Hague on the need of bringing down the illegal wall being built in the Palestinian territory was a big victory for the Islamic world and the Palestinians.
"The US and the Zionist regime`s refusal to accept the (ICJ) ruling indicates their lack of commitment to international regulations and their dual standards regarding international issues," he said. (albawaba.com)
