Former Speaker Deplores Arabs' Silence on Gaza

TEHRAN (FNA)- Former Iranian Parliament Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel criticized the heads of Arab states for being silent about the massacre of defenseless people in the Gaza Strip.



He made the remarks in a meeting with Pakistan's Ambassador to Iran Muhammad Bux Abbasi late Sunday in Tehran.

Hadded Adel who currently chairs Parliament Cultural Committee said Iran and Pakistan share many common interests and called for an expansion of ties between the two neighbors, MNA reported.

He insisted on Iran's readiness to promote political, economic, cultural and parliamentary cooperation with Pakistan.

Abbasi, for his part, pointed to centuries-old relations between Iran and Pakistan and said Islamabad attaches great importance to these relations.

The ambassador also said Iran has a strategic position in the Middle Eastern region.
