Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri has called on Arab and Muslim countries to oppose the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Tel Aviv by shutting down their embassies in Washington.
Berri made the remarks in his speech at the 6th International Conference on Palestine’s Intifada in Tehran on Tuesday.
“It is high time we put our decisions into action and reached consensus on the issue of Palestine,” he said.
The senior Lebanese official further underlined the importance of national unity in Palestine among all the factions, saying “The first recommendation to consider is that there should be a unity among Palestinians, because further steps would have no meaning if Palestinians did not unite among themselves.”
“There needs to be a united Palestinian government to look to the needs of their people and address issues such as al-Quds, and take steps according to agreements of reconciliation in helping Gaza to rebuild itself and unify the legislative council,” Berri added.
He went on to say that Iran is being targeted for supporting Palestine and its Intifada.
Berri also hailed Iran’s efforts in holding a conference on Palestine, describing it as “a valuable opportunity” to further invigorate resistance against the Israeli regime.
