Iranian MFA: Nakba Day reminiscent of occupation's massacres
Iran's Foreign Ministry issues a statement ahead of Nakba Day.
Ahead of the anniversary of Nakba Day, Iran's Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Friday that stated that criminal Zionists usurped the Holy Land of Palestine by force, with the support of some Western powers, through murder and looting.
The Foreign Ministry's statement said the anniversary is a reminder of the humane and legal duty of all governments and nations in the world to defend the rights of the oppressed Palestinian people, and an added reminder of the failure of international organizations and institutions to resolve one of the world's oldest humanitarian and political crises.

The statement further emphasized that Palestine is the Islamic world's most important issue, and considered attempts by the Zionist regime to cover up its atrocities in the global arena as "doomed to failure."
It also added that any compromise with the enemies of the Islamic nation would pave the ground for inhumane acts and human rights violations by the apartheid regime of "Israel".
The Foreign Ministry ended its statement by saying that Iran believes that lasting peace in the region can only be achieved by ending the organized occupation of Palestine, the return of the refugees, and holding a national referendum with the participation of the main residents of the land to determine the future of Palestine, and the formation of an integrated and unified Palestinian state with Al-Quds as its capital.
