Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamad Javad Zarif yesterday stressed that Palestine is a priority for Iran's foreign affairs, reported Al-Manar.

Addressing a meeting of Palestinian activists in Beirut he said: "Palestine is still an important issue for the Islamic world and a priority for Iran's foreign policy, and Palestinian developments are closely watched by the government."

"Zionist regime is the most dangerous threat to the global peace; the foster-child of colonialism, the regime is a nuclear power with 200 nuclear warhead; it had largely been unscathed thanks to the US vetoing of international resolutions in the UN for its atrocities it unleashed upon Palestinians," the Iranian official added.

"However, the threat has not been dealt with by Islamic countries with seriousness, with some even downplaying the threat, shifting the blame on other issues in the region," Zarif underscored, adding that "no threat would be more dangerous and pernicious than the Zionist regime."
