US Not Sincere in Settlement of Gaza Crisis: Iranian FM

The United States lacks the sincerity in contribution to the political settlement of the war against Gaza, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said.

EghtesadOnline: In a meeting with his Qatari counterpart in Doha on Monday night, Amirabdollahian hailed the growing trend of bilateral relations between Iran and Qatar.

He noted that cooperation and consultations between Iran and Qatar regarding the regional developments are constructive and serve the mutual interests of the two countries as well as the collective stability and security of the region.

Referring to the shared view of Tehran and Doha regarding the need to immediately end the Zionist regime’s war on Gaza and its genocidal campaign in the region, Amirabdollahian enumerated Iran’s latest diplomatic moves to achieve that goal.

He also denounced the Zionist regime’s threat to launch a ground attack on Rafah, saying the US government announces plans on preventing the spillover of the war across the region but at the same time, it has not reduced its arms supplies to the Zionist regime, the Foreign Ministry’s website reported.

The top Iranian diplomat added that reaching an agreement and a political solution to end the war on Gaza can come to fruition, provided that America chooses between the continuation of the war and a ceasefire in action, and not in words.

He also praised the diplomatic efforts of Qatar in order to achieve a ceasefire and end the war on Gaza, noting that the US government is not sincere in helping find a political solution to the war.

He emphasized that Hamas and the Palestinian resistance showed their goodwill and prudence in sticking to the political solution, but it is clear that Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, still prioritizes the option of war, and the US government also practically supports the war.

For his part, Qatar’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani described the relations between Doha and Tehran as constructive at the bilateral, regional and international levels and also in terms of helping boost peace and stability in the region.

He underlined his country's resolve to expand relations with Iran and thanked Tehran for its active diplomacy in supporting Palestine and the stability and security of the region.

The Qatari minister also briefed Amirabdollahian on the results of his country's efforts to help form a political agreement and establish a ceasefire in Gaza.

He further said Qatar is on the same page with Iran regarding the need to strengthen efforts to swiftly stop the war and that Qatar will continue its diplomatic endeavors to achieve that goal. / Tasnim
