“Support for OIC Statement Not Indicative of Iran’s Recognition of Israel”

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman says the Islamic Republic’s support for the final statement of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit in Istanbul does not mean that the country recognizes the Israeli regime.

Referring to the documents endorsed at the extraordinary summit of the OIC in Turkey’s Istanbul, Bahram Qassemi said Tehran expressed its support for the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people, but its support for the final declaration of the summit in no way means Iran has recognised the fake occupying Zionist regime.

Iran has refrained from endorsing certain articles of the final statement which somehow implied recognition of Israel, he added.

“Iran’s refusal to recognise the Zionist regime was also formally announced in writing to the Secretariat of the Summit in Istanbul,” Qassemi told reporters on Thursday.
