TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry pointed to Washington’s concern about the serious political crisis that has engulfed the Zionist regime, saying Israel is the sole entity to whose security the US is sincerely committed.
Nasser Kanaani made the remarks in a post on his Twitter account on Tuesday after the White House called on the Israeli regime’s officials in a statement to immediately come up with a “compromise” to resolve the weeks-long crisis in the occupied territories over Netanyahu’s widely-bashed judicial reforms.
“Israel’s godfather that is concerned about its deepening crisis, strongly urges Zionist leaders to find a compromise as soon as possible, believing that is the best path forward for Israel and its citizens,” the Iranian spokesman tweeted.
“The only entity for the security of which, the US is sincerely committed!”, he added.
Mass protests have gripped the apartheid regime since its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced his proposed judicial reforms in January. Tens of thousands of demonstrators have faced off against police in the streets on a weekly basis, with the latest protests attended by hundreds of thousands in Tel Aviv on Saturday and Sunday, Press TV reported.
The Israeli premier had claimed that the so-called judicial reform plan would stop the courts from over-reaching their powers, but critics said they would help him bypass some rules as he faces an ongoing trial for corruption.
Netanyahu announced on Monday evening that he was temporarily freezing the bill that would alter the makeup of Israel’s judicial system. He said he was determined to pass the judicial reform plan.
Israeli protesters, however, vowed that they would press ahead with demonstrations across the occupied territories “as long as the legislation continues and is not shelved.”
