He urged the international community to counter actions taken by the “child-killing regime of Israel” that violates human rights and provisions of various UN resolutions, Mehr News Agency (MNA) reported.
President Rouhani further criticized the international community’s silence towards atrocities of the Israeli regime against the Palestinian people.
“All these actions taken by the Zionist regime take place in a situation that unfortunately, the international community has not taken effective steps to end this tragedy and realize the lost rights of defenseless people of Palestine,” said the president.
He also criticized the Zionist regime’s increased inhumane acts against the Palestinians which have been taken place “due to the support of some permanent members of the UN Security Council.”
President Rouhani further noted, “The regime has also endangered peace and stability in the Middle East region by adopting aggressive actions and policies in the Middle East, especially in Syria and Lebanon and by secretly planning to produce weapons of mass destruction.”
Reiterating Tehran’s continuous “all-out support for the humanitarian and liberating cause of the Palestinian people,” President Rouhani urged the international community “to confront the actions taken by child-killing regime of Israel which violates the human rights and also provisions of all UNSC resolutions.”
He added that Tehran while expressing its full solidarity with the Palestinian people, “reaffirms the important responsibility of the international community, especially the United Nations, in ending the occupation of Palestine and helping the people of this land to achieve their inalienable rights."
The ceremony of the 'International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People' was held in the UN General Assembly headquartered in New York on Tuesday with the participation of representatives from UN member states.
