Iran’s Top Diplomat Hails Algeria’s Support for Palestine

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian hailed the Algerian people’s support for Palestine and the Palestinian cause.

In a meeting with Algerian People’s National Assembly’s Speaker Ibrahim Boughali in Tehran on Monday, Amirabdollahian also praised the North African country’s people for their fight against the colonial powers.

He further said Iran is determined to improve bilateral cooperation with Algeria in various fields, particularly in the economic, trade and tourism sectors.

The foreign minister said the two countries have an “excellent” level of political ties.

The top Iranian diplomat also censured the recent desecration of the Holy Quran in some European countries, including Sweden and Denmark, and said the parliaments of Muslim countries play a leading role in confronting Islamophobia and blasphemous acts against Islamic sanctities.

He noted that the top Iranian and Algerian parliamentarians reached an important agreement on holding a virtual meeting among the heads of parliaments to condemn the sacrilegious acts against Islamic sanctities.

Boughali, for his part, said Tehran and Algiers have a common stance on many international issues and called for the expansion of mutual relations in various fields.

He also condemned a recent terrorist attack against innocent people at the Shah Cheragh holy shrine in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz.

Boughali further said Israel plays a destructive role in many crises facing the Muslim world and threw his country’s weight behind the fair restoration of the Palestinian people’s rights.
