President Raisi calls for OIC emergency meeting on Palestine

The Zionist regime in recent days has been attacking Palestinian worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied al-Quds city, injuring hundreds of worshippers and making arrests. The attacks on Palestinian worshippers during the fasting month of Ramadan have drawn widespread criticism from Islamic countries.

The Iranian president, during a phone talk with his Indonesian counterpart Joko Widodo on Thursday, called for the OIC emergency meeting in order to make a joint decision on defending the rights of the innocent Palestinian people and confronting the Zionist regime’s crimes.

“Palestine is the beating heart of the Islamic world,” Raisi said, adding, “Supporting the rights of the Palestinian nation and fighting the Zionist regime is an unchangeable principle of the structure of the Islamic Ummah.”

The unity of the Islamic world remains a necessity to confront the aggression and crimes by the Zionist regime, the Iranian president noted.

He also said that the Islamic world, as an influential bloc in global equations, needs more integration. For that reason, Raisi said, Iran welcomes any initiative aimed at deepening relations among Islamic countries.

The Indonesian president on his part welcomed his Iranian counterpart’s call for an emergency meeting of the OIC on Palestine and expressed hope that holding the meeting would further promote ties between Islamic countries.

In their phone talk, the two presidents discussed Iran-Indonesia relations as well and stressed the significance of developing them.
