FM: Tehran’s support of Syria is due to its resistance to Israel

Friday, 29 June 2012

Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi met with the Secretary General of the (Palestinian secular) Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Maher Taher, and said that “The spread of the Islamic Awakening in the region will isolate the occupying force of the Zionist regime more than ever before and help disseminate holy Palestinian ideals among regional nations and states.” He added that supporting Palestine is one of Iran’s unwavering principles of foreign policy. Salehi said, “Tehran’s support for Syria is because of the resistance of Damascus against the occupying force of the Zionist regime… All regional countries should be vigilant of the Zionist regime and the plots of the arrogant powers, who want to steer the revolutions off track and provoke sectarian, religious division among them.” Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Saeed Jalili, also met with Maher Taher and said that Palestine belongs to the Muslim World and that Iran “backs the initiatives of Palestinian nation to go ahead with its resistance against Israeli occupation.”
