TEHRAN, IRAN (BosNewsLife)– Iran’s Supreme leader made clear Saturday, October 1, that his country wants to destroy Israel as a Jewish state.
Speaking at Tehran’s annual international “pro-Palestine conference”, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei reiterated that as far Iran is concerned the “ultimate goal” remains to “liberate” all Palestine from the Mediterranean to the Dead Sea.
“Do not forget that if the Palestinians, as they have already done in Gaza, succeed in liberating a part of Palestine and to manage their own affairs through elected representatives, then that is what they must do. But we must never forget the ultimate goal,” he stressed.
Delegates in Iran heard that a Palestinian state can exist “temporarily” as “part of” a “liberated territory”. Israel has expressed concerns that Iran may develop nuclear weapons to increase its influence in the region, despite denials from Tehran that its current nuclear program is for “peaceful purposes.”
The conference in Tehran came as talks were also underway at the United Nations Security Council on Palestine’s bid for recognition.
Euronews television quoted UN diplomats as saying “intense lobbying” has begun of three undecided council members on the issue of recognizing Palestine. They were not named.
The Security Council was set to meet again next week to continue discussions on the issue. (Follow BosNewsLife’s Newsfeed via Twitter.)
