Spokesman: Iranian Diplomacy on Gaza Will Continue

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hassan Qashqavi underlined that Tehran would continue the present diplomacy until the Zionist regime's crimes against defenseless Palestinians ends.

Speaking to reporters during his weekly press briefing here on Monday, he stressed that Iran's diplomacy on Gaza is based on four axes including, end of Israeli violence, urgent withdrawal of the Zionist forces, lift of the Gaza economic blockade, and humanitarian supplies to the innocent Palestinians in Gaza.

Briefing the reporters on Iran's efforts to help settle the Gaza crisis, he criticized the UN resolution 1860 which was issued two weeks after massive bombardments and war crimes perpetrated by Tel Aviv leaders in Gaza.

Condemning the US policy to give vote of abstention to the UN resolution, he said such a move is to show green light to the Zionists crimes against the innocent Palestinian people.

On dispatch of special envoys by the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to different countries to rally support of the international community to end humanitarian crisis in Gaza, Qashqavi said Iran's diplomatic moves and consultations with the world leaders will continue.

He expressed hope that Iran's efforts would bear fruit in the near future.

Despite a UN Security Council resolution which calls for an immediate end to Israeli attacks on Gaza, the Zionist regime continued its savage attacks on Gaza Strip for the 18th consecutive day on Tuesday.

At least 920 Palestinians have been killed since Israel launched its onslaught on December 27 while a number of 4263 have been wounded.
