Speaker: Palestinian issue not to be forgotten by Muslims
Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel said here Friday that Palestine issue will never be put into oblivion by the world’s Muslim nations.
“All Muslim nations support the oppressed Palestinian nation,” Haddad-Adel told IRNA on the sidelines of the International Qods Day rallies.
He said Iranians’ high turnout in today’s demonstrations sends an important message to global arrogance and the usurper Zionist regime that Muslim nations are fully aware of the ongoing conditions worldwide.
Pointing to his decision to scrap his visit to France, Haddad-Adel said he did not consider it worthwhile of the Iranian nation to be represented in a forum to which terrorists were also invited.
“Some factions of the parliamentary associations of European Council have invited the terrorist MKO leader to attend the forum,” said Haddad-Adel while referring to an invitation extended to head of the terrorist Mujahideen Khalq Organization Maryam Rajavi to attend the meeting.
He said certain people, provoked by MKO, started to raise questions about Iran and Palestine at the European Council parliamentary gathering but fortunately the Indonesian speaker gave due response to them.
He added that in fact, the atmosphere they had wished to create in Strasbourg ended in Iran’s favor.
