Iran set to propose ‘Day of Gaza’ at PUIC summit in Uganda

KUWAIT CITY, Jan. 27 (MNA) – Iran will urge the Islamic countries to designate a day in their official calendars as ‘Day of Gaza and Resistance’ at the meeting of the Parliamentary Union of the OIC Member States (PUIC) in Uganda, senior MP Kazem Jalali announced on Wednesday.

Jalali is accompanying Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani in a trip to Uganda to attend the sixth summit of Parliamentary Union of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) which started on January 24 and will run until 31.


“Naming a day as ‘Day of Gaza and Resistance’ in the calendars of Islamic countries is one of the proposals that Iran will put forward at the meeting,” said Jalali, the spokesman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee.


The Iranian parliament has already approved January 7 as ‘Day of Gaza, Symbol of Palestine Resistance,’ he stated.


He went on to say that the Iranian delegation will present the proposal to the Parliamentary Union and will push for approval of the proposal.


Iran also has other proposals to make in regard to the Palestine issue and unity among Islamic countries, he explained. 


The senior Iranian lawmaker added political, economic, and cultural committees will discuss major issues facing the Muslim world on the sideline of the summit.


“Issues concerning Lebanon, Palestine, Afghanistan, and other Islamic countries will be discussed at the meeting.”


During his trip to Kuwait, Larijani had said that examining important issues facing the Muslim world should be discussed at the PUIC summit.


The Iranian parliament speaker is the current president of the Islamic Parliamentary Union. He will preside over the meetings for two days.


According to the New Vision, the conference is aimed at preserving the Islamic values, promoting solidarity among member states, upholding international peace and security in addition to advancing education, particularly in science and technology.
