Iran FM: Zionist regime in worst security, political condition
The Iranian Foreign Minister welcomes bilateral relations and peace in the region while condemning the Israeli occupation.
The Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said the Israeli occupation is in the worst possible security and political situation.
In a meeting with Palestinian groups in Damascus, Amir-Abdollahian stated that some people believe that normalizing relations with the Zionist regime will "address their internal problems," but they are completely mistaken.
Recently, they have falsely claimed that Iran is trying to kidnap Israeli tourists in Turkey by sending several security forces, he said, adding that it was a media campaign by the Zionist regime. He explained that Iran aided Palestinian groups by assisting the Resistance against the Zionist regime.

He added that Iran welcomes the strengthening of Tehran-Cairo relations, which will benefit the region and the Islamic World.
The Foreign Minister emphasized that Iran rejects conflict from Ukraine to Palestine and Yemen, adding that the region should settle its own problems.
He reiterated Iran's support for Palestinians, stating that the last seven decades have shown that Resistance is the only way to liberate Palestine.
Iranian FM in Syria for peace and security
Regional developments need the Islamic Republic of Iran's constant constructive involvement in preventing a new crisis in the region, according to the Foreign Minister.
He stated that his journey to Syria is to promote peace and security between Syria and Turkey, as both countries have close ties with Iran.
According to Amir-Abdollahian, the trip discussed bilateral talks on numerous regional and international problems.
When Amir-Abdollahian arrived in Damascus, he told reporters that the Syrian President's recent visit to Tehran marked a watershed moment in the two nations' relations.
The relevance of his visit to Syria, according to the FM, stems from the fact that Iran and Syria are currently in a new phase of comprehensive cooperation, particularly in the economic and trade spheres.
Amir-Abdollahian used the opportunity to condemn "Israel's" attempts to aggress against Syria and breach its territorial integrity, saying that the Israeli occupation is aiming to destabilize Syria, complicating the return of Syrian refugees.
