Tehran Hosts Confab on Al-Quds and Divine Religions, Participants Slam Trump

Religious minorities in Iran have participated at a one-day conference held to support al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of Palestine and divine religions

Alwaght- Religious minorities in Iran have participated at a one-day conference held to support al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of Palestine and divine religions while condemning US President Trump’s recognition of the holy city as Israeli regime's capital.

Speaking at the conference, which was held under the theme, ‘Al-Quds, Capital of Peace among Religions’, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs, Abbas Araqchi, condemned Donald Trump’s decision to relocate its embassy in Tel Aviv to al-Quds following his recognition of the holy city as the capital of the Israeli regime.

The high ranking Iranian diplomat added that, “the Islamic Republic of Iran will always voice vehement condemnation against this irrational move by the US President, and will stand against any attempts at making a change in the status of al-Quds city.”

“[Trump’s] move is not only unfair, but it also contravenes the UN resolutions,” he added.

The Iranian diplomat went on to note that the enemies of the Islamic World constantly make efforts to deviate the focus of Muslims from the Palestinian issue by establishing terrorist groups, creating civil wars and divisions among Muslim states.

Araqchi once again reaffirmed the position of the Islamic Republic of Iran in support of al-Quds as the “inseparable and inviolable" capital of Palestine, calling on all Muslims in the world to work together toward the liberation of al-Quds and perseverance and support of al-Quds civilization.

The head of the Islamic Culture and Relations Organization, which organized the conference, Abouzar Ebrahimi Torkaman said 'in the name of human rights, they [the so-called supporters of human rights] kill people.'

The US president today, by making unfair decisions, is behaving in such a way as if he were entitled to do whatever he wants, Torkaman said.

The conference was addressed by top representatives of Sunni Muslims, various Christian denomination and Jews in Iran. Palestinian Ambassador to Iran Salah Al-Zawawi, the Ambassador of Palestine to Iran and Ayatollah Mohammad Mohammadi Golpayegani, head of the Office of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, also addressed the gathering.

Torkaman noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran has always stressed the importance of peaceful co-existence between the followers of divine religions.
