Iranian Foreign Minister calls for peace in Middle East

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir abdollahian

New York: Amid ongoing “tit-for-tat” actions between Israel and Iran, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir abdollahian has advocated reducing tensions in the Middle East. He said this while meeting Iranian media in New York.

Amir Abdollahian said war and military tension do not benefit any party in the region, so fundamental solutions should be found. He said that all parties need to focus on political solution.

Amir abdollahian said at the end of his visit to the US that Israel must stop its war crimes in the region. After this, humanitarian aid and exchange of hostages for prisoners will become possible in the Gaza conflict.

Amirabdollahian, who is on a visit to New York to attend several UN sessions, stressed that Iran would not retaliate against Friday’s attacks on military targets in its central Isfahan province. He has held Israel responsible for this attack.

The small drone shot down near Isfahan caused no damage and no casualties, Amirabdollahian was quoted as saying. The Foreign Minister described the attacks as an attempt by pro-Israel media to show Israel’s military dominance.

He is reported to have said, “The small drones that were downed were like the toys our children play with.” But he warned that Iran would respond “strongly and firmly” to an actual Israeli attack.

Friday’s attack on Isfahan, home to key sites of Iran’s nuclear weapons industry, is widely seen as a response to a massive attack by Iranian drones and missiles on Israeli territory last weekend.

That attack was seen as a response to the April 1 attack on the Iranian embassy compound, which was attributed to Israel.
