New York (IP) - Iran's Foreign Minister announced that a resolution recognizing Hamas as a liberation movement was passed in the United Nations General Assembly.

Iran PressAmerica: Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, responding to questions from an Iran Press reporter in New York about the significance of the General Assembly's special meeting on developments in Gaza, stated that despite attempts by Western countries to label Hamas as a terrorist organization, these efforts failed due to Iran's consultations. As a result, Hamas was acknowledged as a liberation movement.

The resolution received 120 positive votes in the GA, sending an important message that Hamas operates within the framework of fighting against occupation and is considered a liberation movement in Palestine. Amir-Abdollahian also emphasized that his visit to New York aimed to pursue a political plan for cooperation with Islamic countries and the United Nations Secretary-General.

The goal is to immediately halt the crimes and genocide being committed against Palestinians in Gaza by Zionist forces.

Furthermore, Iran's foreign minister highlighted that another aspect of this political plan is providing immediate humanitarian aid to Gaza and preventing the forced migration of Palestinians residing there. He mentioned that the United Nations Secretary-General agrees with the general framework of this plan and will be traveling to West Asia on Saturday.

Amir-Abdollahian stated that ideas are being discussed on how to achieve a political solution to end the war in Gaza. The current situation, coupled with unilateral support from the United States towards the Zionist regime, has intensified hostilities in Gaza.

The foreign minister emphasized that if a political solution is not reached soon, there is a possibility of an unpredictable event occurring in the region at any moment.
