The Palestinian Premier also met Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday on the sidelines of the inauguration ceremony of the 15th Asian Games in the Qatari capital city of Doha.
During the meeting, the Iranian president stressed that it is the religious duty of all Muslims to support the Palestinian nation, adding, “There is no doubt that the Palestinian nation and Muslims as a whole will emerge victorious.”
He also pointed out that the Israeli regime has been founded in the heart of Muslim lands in order to create tension in the region and impose the US and Britain’s arrogant policies on regional states.
For his part, Palestinian Premier Ismail Haniyah praised the support extended by the Iranian government and nation for the cause of the Palestinian nation, saying “The Iranian nation’s brilliant stand in the rightful battles of the Palestinians encourages them and signifies their deep understanding of Islamic principles.”
Noting that the resistance of the Palestinian people has undermined the Zionist regime, he stressed, “The Intifada (revolution) of the Palestinian nation will continue until the cause of the Palestine has been materialized and Al-Qods Al-Sharif liberated.”
