FM: Iran’s refusal to recognize Israel has remained unchanged

Thursday, 6 February 2014

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has denied comments attributed to him about the possibility of Iran recognizing Israel. “The position of the Islamic Republic of Iran on its refusal to recognize the Zionist regime (Israel) has not changed at all, and no part of my words can be taken to mean this…What I said in these interviews aimed to explain the reasons for prolonged crisis in the Middle East due to the violation of the fundamental rights of the Palestinian people, in particular their right to determine their own future, form an independent government and for the displaced people to return to their motherland. We have insisted on these in all negotiations and interviews, and said that they should not seek excuses to justify the crimes of the Zionist regime.” Zarif dismissed any other interpretation of his words saying: “Of course such mischievous acts are not unusual, given how desperate the Zionists feel in the face of the Iran’s active foreign policy. However, domestic political circles and media are expected to avoid spreading rumors.”
