TEHRAN (ISNA)- An Iranian parliament official said that the recent meeting between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and the ringleader of an anti-Iran terrorist group (MKO) Maryam Rajavi in Paris is an ‘unfortunate’ for Palestinian nation.

“The problem of Abu Mazen (Abbas) is that he is not focusing on rights of Palestinian nation,” Said Managing Director of Iranian Parliament for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahin said.

“One day Mahmoud Abbas supports Saudi aggression against oppressed Yemenis. Another day, he meets with the outdated ringleader of MKO and is somehow supporting terrorism.”

Supporting instead of fighting terrorism by Palestinian President not only does not cause liberation of Holy Quds and weakening Zionist regime, but also it is an unfortunate for Palestinian nation, he said.

In early July, the MKO held a meeting in Paris, where Saudi Arabia’s former spymaster, Turki al-Faisal, gave a 30-minute speech to the gathering and expressed support for the anti-Iran group.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry subsequently summoned the French Ambassador to Tehran François Sénémaud to hand him a strong note of protest over the meeting.
