Qasemi: Iran serious in confronting occupation of Al-Aqsa mosque

Tehran, July 24, IRNA -- Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said on Monday that Iran has adopted a very clear stance about occupation of Palestine, the crimes and atrocities of the Zionist regime and tramping upon rights of Palestinians.

Speaking to reporters in his weekly press briefing, Qasemi said that Iran strongly condemns occupation of Al-Qqsa Mosque.

Iran has issued two statements in recent days and is to spare no efforts to continue talks with other countries to render more aid to people in Palestine, but regretfully and due to the characteristics of some Islamic countries and the prevailing unpleasant status in the Islamic world, the Zionist regime has speeded up its crimes, he said.

Islamic states should be more serious and have firm determination in the fight against the Zionist regime, he said.
