Iran condemns USA decision to move embassy to Jerusalem


Victory is for the Islamic nation.

The Supreme Leader slammed USA politicians for trying to sow discord and conflicts among Muslim countries and said: "The American officials say that they need to cause war in the region to safeguard the Zionist Regime". "Palestine will be free, and the Palestinian people will be victorious".

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has reiterated that the most important reason for the falling apart of stability and security in the Middle East is the continued occupation and the biased and unequivocal support of the American government for the Zionist regime", the statement said. So, the Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns the USA decision and calls on the worldwide community and leading states particularly the Islamic countries to step into the fray and stop the implementation of the U.S. decision because it only serves the Zionist regime's interests. We look for unity; but, in response to this willingness for unity, there are some who seek a war and their policies are based on war.

"We have no conflict with Islamic nations". In response, we admonish; we use a language of advice; we rely on admonition. "Today, the enemies have launched a new conspiracy against the Muslims and have targeted the great goal of the liberation of the Holy Quds", said Rouhani.

The imprudent and provocative decision of the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Zionist regime not only does not at all contribute to peace and stability in the region but also reveals the nasty intentions of the USA administration and further discredits the United States before those who still have confidence in the neutrality of Washington in the mirage-like trend of peace talks. "The Holy Quds belongs to Muslims and Palestinians, and it is not a place in which anyone can stand against the thoughts and feelings of the people".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani denounced as "provocative and dangerous" the United States decision to recognize Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the Israeli regime's capital, calling for concerted action by Muslim and peace-loving nations to defy such an illegal measure.

"There is a heavy responsibility - in this regard - lying on the Islamic countries and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation", he said.

His move has set off alarms throughout the world, particularly in Muslim countries.
