Iran always supporting people of Palestine, cause of resistance: Speaker

Tehran, Jan 2, IRNA - The Speaker of the Iranian Parliament has emphasized that support for Palestine will increase the security of the region and the Islamic Republic will always support the people of Palestine and the cause of resistance.

In a meeting with Secretary-General of Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement (PIJ) Ziad Al-Nakhaleh and accompanying delegation on Wednesday, Ali larijani said support for the oppressed people of Palestine is the Islamic duty of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

'Supporting the Palestinians will boost security of the region, and the Islamic Republic will always support the Palestinian people and the cause of resistance,' announced Larijani.

Referring to recent developments in Palestine and Palestinians' “March of Return”, the speaker said, 'Under current circumstances, the US strategy and the Zionist regime are confronting and limiting the axis of resistance, but the actions and initiatives of the Palestinian people, such as the March of Return, neutralize these behaviors.'

”There is no doubt that in the region, developments determine direction of the victory of the axis of resistance, which makes the enemies more decisive to confront and restrict the Palestinian people”, Iranian Speaker underlined.

Larijani argued, 'There is no doubt that the only way to overcome the enemy is to support the cause of the resistance, but in order to realize this, initiatives should be taken, such as the March of Return”.

Secretary-General of Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement (PIJ) Ziad Al-Nakhaleh, hailing the Islamic Republic's support for the oppressed Palestinian people and the cause of the resistance, said, 'I have to thank the Islamic Republic's support for the oppressed Palestinian people. Iran supports Palestine under conditions that many Arab countries are normalizing relations with Zionists.

Al-Nakhaleh continued, 'This year was a special year for the Palestinian people, especially Gaza Strip. In spite of the blockade of the Gaza Strip and the difficult conditions, the people of this area launched the initiative of the March of Return, which has greatly influenced the domestic, regional and International public opinions.'
