AlQuds Not for Sale, FM Zarif Tells Muslim Envoys

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has blasted as "shameful" the US president"s socalled "Deal of the Century" plan, saying that AlQuds is not for sale.

The Iranian top diplomat made the remarks during a Wednesday Iftar banquet attended by the ambassadors of Muslim countries in Tehran.

"The current situation in the Muslim world is a painful one. There"s no pain and danger bigger than the fact that certain regional states support the shameful deal of the century," Zarif said.

"AlQuds is not up for sale; it is the first qibla of Muslims and the centre of wishes and dreams of all Muslim people," he added.
