Iran, Pakistan denounce recent Israeli provocations in Palestine
The Iranian Foreign Minister and his Pakistani counterpart tackle the current situation in occupied Palestine in light of the recent Israeli provocations against the Palestinian people.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Pakistani counterpart Bilawal Bhutto Zardari held a phone call on Friday during which the two ministers condemned Israeli Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir’s incursion into Al-Aqsa Mosque last Tuesday and denounced the occupation’s aggressive measures, most notably its provocative actions against holy sites.
The two ministers exchanged viewpoints on the current status in occupied Palestine.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian strongly criticized the Zionist Israeli regime's lobbying activities in spreading Islamophobia and the new action of the fake regime in desecrating Al-Aqsa Mosque.
He pointed to the insulting cartoons by the recent French magazine Charlie Hebdo and the responsibility of the French government in that regard and said, "The Zionist lobby is behind the action of the French magazine..."
"Islamic countries should not allow some Western countries to insult the holy things and spread hatred in their agenda under the name of freedom," Amir-Abdollahian said.
On his part, Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Tweeted: "In the phone call we exchanged viewpoints about the recent move of the Zionist regime and its invasion against Al Aqsa Mosque."
The top Pakistani diplomat further voiced concern over the continuation of the aggressive approaches of the Zionist Israeli regime, especially condemning the recent actions of the regime in desecrating Al-Aqsa Mosque, and added that the silence of countries against injustice in Palestine must end.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan issued a statement Wednesday, protesting against Israeli Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir’s storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
This comes against the backdrop of recent provocations against the Palestinian people when Israeli Police Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque on Tuesday, protected by a large number of Israeli occupation forces.
The move was largely condemned by several states across the world, including Jordan, which recently summoned the Israeli occupation ambassador over the incident.
