Iran urges Islamic states to form united front against Israeli crimes

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has urged the Islamic countries to form a united front in order to stop the Israeli regime's criminal actions against the Palestinian people.

Raisi made the remarks in a phone call with Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday on the eve of International Quds Day.

The president expressed deep concern over the latest developments in the occupied territories, especially the Zionist regime’s desecration of the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Referring to the friendly and long-standing relations between the two countries, the Iranian president expressed hope that the mutual ties will expand further, especially in the economic and energy fields.

Raisi said that the policy of strengthening relations with neighbors and developing relations with Islamic countries is one of the basic objectives of the Iranian government.

Sharif, for his part, strongly condemned Israel’s crimes, saying his country will remain a permanent supporter of the Palestinian people.

He also expressed hope that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation would take steps to establish a united front to prevent the continuation of the Israeli regime’s crimes.

Sharif added that Pakistan appreciates the efforts of the Islamic Republic of Iran for forging regional peace and stability.

In addition, the Pakistani PM congratulated Iran on the revival of Tehran-Riyadh diplomatic relations.

Sharif also expressed his country’s commitment to strengthening bilateral relations with Iran in all areas of mutual interest, especially trade energy cooperation security and regional stability.

Last week, heavily armed Israeli forces raided al-Aqsa Mosque twice, wounding dozens and arresting hundreds of Palestinians, who were praying at Islam’s third holiest site.

The violence, which took place during the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan, was followed by Israeli airstrikes on Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip amid rocket fires by Palestinian resistance groups toward the occupied territories.
