Iran Hopeful about Peace in Palestine

A01368428.jpgTEHRAN (Fars News Agency) Iran said it hoped Palestinian issue would be resolved through the implementation of a Tehran plan which calls for the restoration of Palestinians’ rights.

“We hope that the Islamic Republic’s plan, which is a logical plan consistent with the democratic principles seemingly adored by the West, will be implemented in the current year and we witness restoration of the rights of the Palestinian nation and establishment of peace and security (in that country),” Iranian Government Spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham told reporters during a press briefing here Tuesday.

Elsewhere, he noted Iran’s efforts to clarify the fate of the prominent Lebanese Shiite cleric, Imam Moussa Sadr, saying that the issue is on the Islamic Republic’s agenda.

Elham pointed out that the vice-president for legal affairs is responsible for the follow-up to the case of Imam Musa Sadr, an Iranian-born cleric abducted on August 31, 1978 during an official visit to Libya at the invitation of Libyan President, Muammar Al-Qadhafi.

He further mentioned that the fate of Imam Sadr was discussed with Libyan officials during a recent visit to Tripoli by Iranian First Vice-President Parviz Davoudi.
