Tehran, May 20, 2021 (ICANA) – Head Iran Parliament in Asian Parliamentary Assembly (APA) said APA capacity can be used to supports oppressed Palestinians and to slam Zionists' aggressions and massacre.
Addressing APA permanent Committee on Economic Affairs and Sustainable Development virtual meeting, Masoumeh Pashaie said Iran has always supported the Palestinian cause and in recent years has not spared any efforts in support of this cause.
The Islamic Parliament of Iran has also made successful efforts at the parliamentary level and in the form of opportunities for inter-parliamentary unions, including the Assembly of Asian Assemblies (APA) and the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC).
People in many countries are suffering from sanctions on UCM unilateral measures, which are unfair and contrary to the UN Charter and the principles of international law, she said.
Sanctions impede regional and international cooperation, as well as the sustainable development and environmental goals, she added.
These sanctions are against international law, especially the right to live, she noted.
The Islamic Republic of Iran pays attention to regional and international cooperation with other countries in the field of sustainable development goals, especially education-related goals, and acts based on its laws, regulations and cultural and religious values.
