Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has called for an urgent halt to Israel’s ongoing aggression on the Gaza Strip, demanding active role by international organizations to bring the occupying regime to justice for its genocidal war.
Amir-Abdollahian made the call during the 12th annual summit of foreign ministers of the five Caspian Sea littoral states, Caspian Five, which is hosted by Russia, in the country’s capital of Moscow on Tuesday, reports Press TV.“The Zionist regime’s war criminals must be punished in the international court,” Amir said as he pointed to the more than 16,000 innocent Palestinians, including women and children, killed by the Israeli regime in Gaza since October 7.
Calling for international pressure on Israel to lift the blockade on the Strip, Amir said, “Stop the export of goods to the occupied Palestinian territories and boycott the goods made in Israel; this is the least [we can do] to show our sympathy for the people of Gaza.”
The diplomat also said Iran recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to resist the Israeli occupation within the framework of international law and United Nations resolutions, underlining the necessity of restoring their right to self-determination as well as the formation of the Palestinian State with al-Quds as its capital and the return of Palestinian refugees to their homeland.
