Iran FM: Mideast solution can only be achieved when Palestinian rights identified
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said at a security conference in Germany that Tehran would not change its stance on the Middle East problem until the Palestinians were treated fairly.


"As long as the Palestinians don't get their basic rights, there will not be an end to the Middle East conflict, he said "You can find a thousand reasons, you can create smoke screens and scapegoats, but they're all antitheses to finding a solution." Zarif refrained from mentioning Israel by name during his statements. (Eldad Beck, Munich)
