Zarif arrives in Turkey


Tehran (ISNA) -Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Istanbul on Tuesday heading a delegation to take part in an extraordinary meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and discuss the latest developments of Al-Quds.

Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi announced Zarif’s plan to attend the OIC meeting and said, "The need for consultation and cooperation among Muslim countries is now felt more than ever in the wake of the recent developments in the occupied territories and the increased pressure on Palestinian people, particularly in Al-Quds".

"Islamic countries should never forget the fact that, despite certain disagreements, Palestine is the top priority of Muslim world," he noted.

"The issue [of Palestine] will not be resolved unless the Islamic society (Ummah) maintains its unity and exerts pressure on the occupying regime of Israel," the spokesman added.
