VOInews, Jakarta: Iranian Ambassador to Indonesia Mohammad Boroujerdi appreciated the Indonesian government's firm and principled stance in supporting Palestine and condemning the crimes of the Israeli Zionist regime, especially during the last six months.

"For me as a foreign ambassador, the honorable Mr. Joko Widodo and Mrs. Retno Marsudi are two heroes who stand on the right side in the current conditions (the Israeli-Palestinian conflict)," said Ambassador Boroujerdi during a media briefing on the theme of International Al-Quds Day. at his residence in Jakarta, Wednesday (3/4) evening.

Quoted from Antaranews on Thursday (4/4), The Ambassador said that the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Indonesia, as two important Islamic countries both bilaterally and through international forums, have always supported the Palestinian struggle.

"Both countries have the same principles regarding Palestine and base their position on the full independence and liberation of Palestine," he said.

Ambassador Boroujerdi added that the brave speech of the Indonesian Minister of Foreign Affairs in international forums and organizations such as the UN Security Council, UN General Assembly, UN Human Rights Council and International Court, shows the continuation of Indonesia's continuous support for the realization of Palestinian independence.

Since the Israeli Zionist regime launched its deadly and genocidal attack on Gaza in October 2023, more than 30,000 Gazans have lost their lives, 70 percent of whom are women and children.

"Every day the international community witnesses the murder of innocent Palestinian women and children without taking effective action to stop these heinous crimes," he said.

According to the ambassador, the lack of serious action by the international human rights community against the forced displacement, ethnic cleansing and genocide of Palestinians by the Zionist regime occurs when the Israeli regime always tries to purify its inhuman face by referring to the Holocaust.

Furthermore, Ambassador Boroujerdi said that although it took the world community seven decades to realize the true nature of the Zionist regime, it was still not too late to take global and international steps to stop the Israeli regime's crimes.

"Effective and timely action by the global and international community to stop the crimes of the Zionist regime can prevent the situation from getting worse and the coordinated action of the Islamic community in support of Palestine can have the greatest impact on the process of Palestinian independence," he said.
