"Palestine is a yardstick for justice. Few measure up", Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted Thursday on the eve of the International Quds Day (May 7).
Referring to Tehran’s support for the cause of Palestine, Zarif added, "But Iran has proudly stood with Palestinian people—who resist the brutality of an apartheid regime".
"Quds Day is yearly reminder of the moral imperative of global solidarity for Palestine."
The International Quds Day is seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini, who back in 1979, following the victory of the Islamic Revolution, officially declared last Friday of the holy fasting month of Ramadan as the day when world Muslims express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposition to the occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime of Israel, Mehr news Agency wrote.
