Raisi calls for moment of respectful silence for Gaza martyrs

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi during his speech to the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) summit underway in Uzbekistan has called for a moment of silence for respecting the martyrs of Gaza.

President Raisi called on the ECO states to pray for the powerful oppressed people of Gaza, the IRNA reported on Thursday.

During his speech, President Raisi highlighted Iran’s unconditional support for the ECO activities.

The president went on to say that Iran is determined to unite more energy and sources to make a boom in cooperation in ECO.

The positive process of cooperation in the ECO would lead to greater willingness to develop regional relations within the framework of the Organization, the president added.

He also described ECO as the most related and mature mechanism for economic cooperation in the region.

Elsewhere, the president once again touched on the issue of Gaza, condemned the West and the US's all-out support for the Zionists’ aggression against Gaza and introduced the United States as the Israeli regime’s accomplice in its crimes against the Palestinian nation.

That millions of people from across the world rally in support of Palestine and the oppressed people in Gaza indicates that Palestine has lied at the heart of the world nations, he underlined.

As he stressed, the dispatch of humanitarian aid to the people in Gaza is the most important measure to be taken at the present time.

The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the more the Zionist regime continues its crimes, the more complicated the situation of the region becomes, he announced.

So, Iran urges immediate cessation of attacks and massacres and facilitation of international humanitarian aid to Gaza.

President Raisi arrived in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, on Thursday morning to attend the 16th ECO Summit on November 9.
