Asefi denounces Italian FM statement

Tehran, Nov 3 - Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said on Wednesday that the statement made by Italian Foreign Minister Gianfranco Fini on UN referral of Iranian nuclear case emanated from Israeli propaganda campaign.

"Such a statement being made by Italian Foreign Minister in occupied Palestinian territory is example of indifference to massacre of defenseless Palestinians by Israel and its state terrorism and is beyond diplomatic norms and criteria," Asefi said.

Asefi said that the international community is aware of inhumane Israeli state terrorism, assassination of Palestinian activists, bombing of Palestinian residential areas and violation of human rights of the Palestinians.

"Western states are expected to adopt independent stance on Palestinians from the perspective of humanitarian values."

The world public opinion asks a question that how western states are unable to condemn systematic Israeli genocide of Palestinians and assassination of Palestinian activists which manifest state terrorism in light of the stockpiling of nuclear weapons in contravention of Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regulations.

He said that the President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in his statement to the world summit last September laid the foundation of disarmament of nuclear arms in the world and called for fair settlement of Palestinian dilemma by holding a referendum in the state of Palestine in which all Muslims, Christian and Jewish population of Palestine will take part, establishment of a democratic government in the state of Palestine with holy Qods as its capital and repatriation of several million Palestinian refugees to their homeland.

"The Zionist regime of Israel is misleading public opinion of the international community by magnifying Iranian nuclear program to allay international concerns about violation of human rights of the great nation of Palestine and its systematic genocide of Palestinians," he said.
