Iran and Russia must fully utilize their capacities to put an immediate end to Israel’s attacks on defenseless Palestinian people in Gaza and dispatch humanitarian aid to the besieged territory, the Iranian deputy foreign minister for political affairs says.
Ali Bagheri Kani made the remark in a meeting with Deputy Secretary of the Russian Security Council Alexander Venediktov in Moscow on Friday as the Israeli regime continues its brutal attacks against the defenseless people in Gaza for the past 21 consecutive days.
The Russian security official, for his part, said the United States is the root cause of the ongoing worrisome situation in Palestine.
Venediktov added that the US seeks to cause crisis in the West Asia region by creating centers of tension. He said the US survival depends on obtaining material benefits from developing crisis, saying the White House rulers are not keen in improving regional stability and peace.
On October 7, the Palestinian resistance group Hamas launched its biggest operation against Israel in years in a surprise offensive, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, in response to the occupying regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.
Since then, Israel has pressed ahead with a relentless bombardment of Gaza. The death toll in Gaza since the start of the Israeli onslaught has reached 7,326, including 3,038 children and 1,726 women. Around 18,967 Palestinians have also been wounded.
Tel Aviv has also blocked water, food, and electricity to Gaza, plunging the besieged territory into a humanitarian crisis.
Venediktov officially invited Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Akbar Ahmadian to visit Moscow to discuss the latest mutual, regional and international issues.
Bagheri Kani traveled to Moscow on Thursday at the invitation of his Russian counterpart to exchange views about Israel’s war in Gaza.
He held talks with Mousa Abu Marzouk, a member of the Hamas political bureau, in Moscow.
