Iran: West Asia peace, security hinge on disarmament of Israel, end of Palestine's occupation

Iran says the establishment of full and genuine peace, stability and security in the West Asia region hinges on the disarmament of Israel and an end to its occupation of Palestine.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in an address to the third Iranian-Arab Dialogue Conference, dubbed "For Cooperation and Interaction", in Tehran on Sunday.

He added that the people of Palestine have been deprived of all their rights and Israel's "unequal war" in Gaza over the past seven months once more showed the reality of the Palestinian issue to the world.

The Israeli regime took shape based on violation of Palestinians' rights, occupation, warmongering and extremism and lacks the potential to have peaceful coexistence with regional nations, he noted.

The top Iranian diplomat lashed out at the United States for providing Israel with full and unconditional support for the regime's crimes and genocide against the people of Palestine.

The US has also violated all its false and deceptive claims of advocating peace, democracy and human rights, he emphasized.

Amir-Abdollahian said sustainable peace and stability will not be established in Palestine and the Arab-Islamic region unless the rights of the Palestinian people are realized.

He emphasized that regional nations, particularly Palestinians, have no option but to continue their resistance to achieve their absolute rights.

As a responsible actor and supporter of international peace and security, Iran stresses the importance of holding a referendum as a political solution to the Palestinian issue and establishing a Middle East free of nuclear weapons, the foreign minister added.

He said Iran expresses its full readiness to cooperate with the regional and neighboring countries as well as the member states of the Muslim and Arab world.

The Islamic Republic will spare no effort to realize the Palestinian people's cause, he added.

More than 35,000 Palestinians, mostly children and women, have been killed in the war that Israel began on October 7, 2023 following a retaliatory operation by the Palestinian territory’s resistance movements.

The brutal military onslaught enjoys unreserved military and political support on the part of the Israeli regime’s Western allies, including the United States and France.

Iran in new phase of relations with Persian Gulf Arab states

Elsewhere in his address, Amir-Abdollahian reiterated Iran's determination to deepen understanding and convergence among the regional countries, saying the restoration of relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia is an indication of such a policy.

Iran and Saudi Arabia enjoy ample capacities and capabilities which can be used to boost cooperation in the region and the Muslim world, he added.

He noted that Iran seriously heeds the promotion of ties with other Persian Gulf littoral states.

Iran has started to enhance its relations with the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait and welcomes Bahrain's move to release detainees on political charges, the foreign minister emphasized.

"We believe that today we have passed the phase of Iranian-Arab dialogue and have entered into regional dialogue…We are now in the stage of regional cooperation," Amir-Abdollahian said.
