Iran to continue peace-making efforts in region

TEHRAN, May 09 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has told the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres that Iran will continue its efforts to create peace and security in region amid the Zionist regime's war on Gaza.

In a phone call with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Thursday, Amir-Abdollahian said the Islamic Republic of Iran continues its efforts to establish stability and security in the region, especially by ending the crimes of the Israeli regime in the war against Gaza.

He also appreciated the efforts of the UN secretary general aimed at ending the occupying regime’s genocidal war on Gaza.

Amir-Abdollahian warned that if the US, instead of putting pressure on Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to accept a ceasefire, appeases this regime in committing new crimes in Rafah, the consequences will be severe for the supporters of the war.

Guterres, for his part, expressed gratitude for Iran’s wise actions and positions to achieve peace and security in the region, saying the UN has emphasized its firm position from the beginning to achieve a ceasefire and end the war as soon as possible.

“We are in the process of putting pressure on Israel and actively consulting with the United States and other influential countries to establish a ceasefire and an immediate end to the war in Gaza and the region, and especially to open the Rafah crossing as soon as possible and other crossings that are the lifeline of the people of Gaza,” he said.

The UN chief added, “I am constantly in contact with Egypt, Qatar and Jordan in addition to the ongoing consultation between us, and I ask all sides to focus on stopping the war and bloodshed. Be sure that we will continue seriously until the war is stopped and the problems are resolved, and we thank Iran in this way.”
