Iran's Zarif, Muslim States' FMs Discuss Gaza on Phone

Politics - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his counterpart from Islamic countries voiced concern over the ongoing bloodshed in the Gaza Strip, and vowed to do their best to end the three-week massacre of the innocent civilians by the Israeli military in the besieged enclave.

In separate phone conversations with his counterparts from Algeria, Jordan, Pakistan, Morocco, Sudan, Qatar, Kuwait, Turkey, and Egypt on Sunday, the top Iranian diplomat said that the routes for sending humanitarian aid to blockaded enclave must be opened.

Zarif underlined the vital importance of supplying the Gazans with medicine and medical equipment as well as treatment of the wounded people.

The Iranian foreign minister also called for joint action by Muslim and Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) countries at international level to exert pressure on Tel Aviv to end killing of the Gazans.

Zarif's counterparts, meantime, sympathized with the people of Gaza and called all Muslim countries to help resolve the enclave's crisis.

Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 21 consecutive days, killing at least 1,062 people and injuring more than 6,000 others.
