Iran supports UN chief's efforts to end genocidal war in Gaza

Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says Tehran supports efforts by the UN chief to put an end to Israel's genocidal war against the people of Palestine in the Gaza Strip.

"Iran backs efforts by the UN secretary general to halt the war on Gaza and end genocide of Palestinians,” Amir-Abdollahian said in a meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in Geneva, Switzerland, on Monday.

“The United Nations can count on Iran's help to [establish] sustainable security in the region," he added.

Pointing to his recent meetings with Palestinian resistance leaders in Lebanon and Qatar, he added that the resistance front in Palestine enjoys a very good situation in terms of military power to continue the fight against Israel's aggression.

"However, the Israeli regime continues to perpetrate crimes against Palestinians, and the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, especially in the north, is very disastrous," he emphasized.

The top Iranian diplomat noted that the Palestinian resistance groups support a permanent ceasefire in Gaza but "the Israeli regime, with the support of the United States, insists on continuing the war" which would not avail.

He pointed to the "very grave" humanitarian crisis in Gaza and said Israel has killed thousands of the Palestinian people with bombs and now seeks to starve the remaining population.

Amir-Abdollahian commended the efforts by the United Nations and its chief to send humanitarian aid to Palestinians but emphasized that the extent of the disastrous situation in Gaza is much bigger than the UN aid.

The US is not keen yet to end the war and is rather seeking to intensify the crisis in the Red Sea and Yemen, he pointed out, warning that US military strikes against Yemen would jeopardize joint Iran-UN efforts to solve the Yemeni crisis.
