According to Press TV, Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Friday “Today, all the Palestinian revolutionaries have come to the conclusion that the only way for [the Palestinians’] salvation is resistance against Israel’s excessive demands until all of the country’s territories are liberated.”
He pointed to a planned meeting between the President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, and Zionist regime’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Moscow and said such negotiations would “certainly bear no fruit.”
Boroujerdi added that the Palestinian Authority has constantly suffered setbacks since it started to going down the wrong path of compromise and reconciliation with the Israeli regime.
The Iranian legislator emphasized that the Palestinians themselves must handle their own affairs.
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in September that the Palestinian Authority president and the Israeli regime’s prime minister have agreed “in principle” to meet in Moscow as Russia hopes for the revival of the so-called peace talks.
She added that it was not clear when the meeting would take place, saying, “The most important thing is to pick the right timing. Intensive contacts on this are ongoing.”
Palestinian leaders earlier had rejected the idea of open-ended talks with Zionist regime, saying any future negotiations with the Tel Aviv regime should have a time cap.
The latest round of the so-called peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians, which was organized by the United States, collapsed in 2014.
Tel Aviv’s illegal settlement activities in the occupied lands and its refusal to release senior Palestinian prisoners were among major reasons behind the failure of the talks.
