Resistance only way of victory for Palestinians : Rafsanjani


Tehran : Chairman of Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani received Hamas Headquarter Commander Emud al-Elmi here Saturday afternoon.

In the meeting, Rafsanjani said, "Islamic resistance is the only way for liberation of Palestine and freedom of the Islamic territories,"

He added, "Islamic Republic of Iran supports the Palestinians politically and ideologically to achieve their rights."

Ayatollah Rafsanjani said, "The religious beliefs of Hamas movement is a great asset for continuation of its way" adding, "The fact that Hamas moves and struggles on the basis of Islamic thoughts, is the secret of its success."

EC chairman said, "Conflicts among Palestinian groups is what the Zionists want," adding, "Islamic Republic of Iran hopes that unity and brotherhood can be returned among Palestinian groups again."

Ayatollah Rafsanjani underlined that the Western countries do not want to help the Palestinian government and their policy, along with the Zionist regime, is based on weakening the Palestinians.

Emud al-Elmi, who is in charge of Hamas domestic affairs too, said, "Unity and understanding in Palestine is our desire, too," adding, "Establishment of a national unity government is a principle for Hamas and we are seeking a united government in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank."

He said, "Hamas does not want to separate Gaza Strip and the West Bank and we want negotiation and understanding based on our past agreements."
