Oman, Iran Urge Aid to Gaza, Halt to Israeli Genocide

TEHRAN - Iran’s acting Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Sultanate of Oman Seyyed Badr Albusaidi on Tuesday emphasized the pursuit of sending urgent humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza and intensifying political pressure against the Zionist regime to stop the genocide.
Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Ali Bagheri Kani appreciated and thanked the kind messages of the Sultan and other high-ranking officials of the Sultanate of Oman.
He pointed out that in this incident, “we received a sense of friendship, brotherhood and good neighborliness from the high-ranking officials of the Sultanate of Oman, and the presence of His Excellency and the accompanying delegation will be recorded in the memory of the Iranian nation”.
Seyyed Badr Albusaidi recalled his friendly and intimate relations with Hussein Amir-Abdollahian, the Martyr Minister of Foreign Affairs, traveled to Iran and conveyed the condolences and sympathies of the Sultan, the government and people of Oman to the leadership and the government and people of Iran.
He described a task within the framework of friendship, brotherhood and neighborly relations between the two countries and prayed for peace and divine forgiveness for the souls of martyrs.
On Monday evening, Bagheri Kani met and held talks with former Iraqi prime minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi in Tehran, and called upon scholars in the Muslim world to explore all available avenues and exert more pressure on the Israeli regime in order to stop its onslaught against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
During the meeting, the Iranian diplomat pointed to the strategic changes and developments that have taken shape at regional and international levels following Operation al-Aqsa Storm launched by Gaza-based Palestinian resistance groups on October 7 last year, and Operation True Promise, through which Iran made Israel pay the cost of the criminal attack against its embassy in the Syrian capital.
On April 1, the Israeli regime carried out terrorist airstrikes on the consular section of Iran’s embassy in the Syrian capital Damascus, which killed two IRGC generals, Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi and General Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, as well as five of their accompanying officers.
In retaliation, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) targeted the occupied territories on April 13 with a barrage of missiles and drones. The retaliatory strikes, dubbed Operation True Promise, inflicted damage on Israeli military bases across the occupied Palestinian territories.
Bagheri Kani underlined that prominent thinkers and elites of the Muslim world must play much greater role, and heap pressure on Israel and its sponsors, above all the United States, so that the occupying regime would stop its crimes and genocide in Palestinian territories.
The acting Iranian foreign minister also emphasized the outstanding and undeniable role that late top Iranian anti-terror commander General Qassem Soleimani, late President Ebrahim Raeisi and late Foreign Minister Hussein Amir-Abdollahian played in supporting the Axis of Resistance, and reiterated that the Islamic Republic of Iran will unwaveringly continue the principled approach.
The two sides also discussed a wide range of international and regional issues, including the crimes and genocide of the occupying regime in Palestine and the moral and human responsibilities of Muslim governments in this regard.
Abdul-Mahdi and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Sultanate of Oman visited Tehran to offer condolences on the passing of Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi, who lost his life alongside seven others in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran on May 19.
