TEHRAN- Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi conveyed his serious worry over recent events in Palestine in a phone call with Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday.

In light of the Zionist regime’s violation of Al-Aqsa Mosque, Raisi hoped that the Muslim world will unite to put an end to the Israeli regime’s heinous crimes.

He also denounced the atrocities committed by the Zionist regime, particularly their disrespect of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The Iranian president also expressed confidence that Islamic countries would establish a unified front to prevent the continuance of Zionist atrocities, according to his official website.

Hundreds of Palestinian worshipping were injured and detained as armed Israeli troops conducted two raids on Al-Aqsa Mosque last week. Photos from the attacks showed imprisoned Palestinian worshippers being brought into a van with their wrists tied and their legs and arms wrapped behind their backs.

For his part, Prime Minister Sharif criticized the recent criminal acts of the Zionist regime. He also called Pakistan an unwavering ally of the Palestinian people, and expressed hope that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) would unite to stop further Zionist crimes.

Sharif also emphasized the need to improve ties between Tehran and Islamabad.

‘Cordial ties between Tehran and Islamabad’ 

Raisi also praised the cordial and long-standing ties between Tehran and Islamabad and expressed optimism that they would continue to grow, particularly in the areas of business and energy.

Raisi continued, “One of the main approaches of the 13th administration (his administration) is the policy of strengthening relations with neighbors and developing relations with Islamic countries.” 

Prime Minister Sharif also highlighted his nation’s preparedness to carry out the economic cooperation projects with Iran while highlighting Iran’s advantageous position in the region and the significance of deepening Islamabad’s ties with Tehran.
