Iranian Foreign Minister: Israel will fail to achieve goals in Gaza

09 February 2010 [18:49] - TODAY.AZ
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki has expressed confidence that Israel will be unable to achieve its goals in the Gaza Strip.
"The Zionists [Israelis] will definitely fail to reach their objectives in Gaza," said Mottaki in a meeting with Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Ramadan Abdullah in Tehran on Monday.

"The occupying regime [Israel] is not in a position to make mistakes because it is aware of their consequences," Mottaki added.

He criticized the West's stance on international issues including the ongoing developments in Palestine and the Middle East and said that Palestinian popular resistance against Israel would lead to their victory.

Mottaki went on to say that he hoped the West would change its "irrational" approach to regional and international developments and that "all countries would enjoy their inalienable rights."
