Leader calls Pakistan flood most urgent issue of Islamic world

TEHRAN, Sept. 10 (MNA) – The Supreme Leader called the devastating floods in Pakistan which have left about 20 million homeless the most urgent issue of the Islamic world and called for an immediate humanitarian assistance to Pakistan by Muslim nations and governments including Iran.

“The nation and government of Iran, other Muslim nations and governments in every corner of the world, Islamic organizations particularly the Organization of the Islamic Conference, must rush with all their capacity to the help of the Pakistan nation and government,” Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei told top officials and ordinary people who congregated at Tehran University campus to hold Eid al-Fitr prayers.

The Leader also hit out at certain powers and terrorist groups who are misusing the situation to destabilize Pakistan.

“Some (countries and groups) are trying to turn Pakistan into their own military garrison,” the Leader noted.

He added it is hoped that Pakistan would act to its duties in the best way possible to get rid of the current situation.

Elsewhere in his talks, Ayatollah Khamenei said the so-called Middle East peace conference in Washington was intended to cover up crimes committed by the Zionist occupiers in Palestine.

“To cover up their crimes, the enemies of the Palestinian people and the supporters of the Zionist occupiers held a meeting in Washington and called it a ‘peace conference’.”

The Leader asked, “But the peace of whom with whom?”

The Leader added in the light of realities in Palestine it is “absurd” to talk about peace.

The Leader also described the Judization of the holy Qods as a great crime by Zionists, insisting that “Muslim nations and governments must act to their important duties in the face of this plot.”

He also praised the resistance of the Palestinians against Zionists.

“Today, the Palestinian nation is more determined and more powerful than any other time and undoubtedly” they will put an end to the occupation of their land by the fake regime of Israel, the Leader asserted.
