PRESS CONFERENCE BY PRESIDENT OF IRAN
To a question regarding Iran’s support for Palestine, he said that his country had completely supported the Palestinian people’s resistance and had also offered humanitarian and democratic solutions. His offer for a solution to the Palestinian issue would soon be submitted to the Secretary-General. What made that plan different from all other initiatives was that it looked at the roots of the Palestinian problem. It also addressed the right of self-determination of the Palestinian people. There should be a free referendum under the supervision of international organizations, whereby Palestinians could decide in free elections what type of Government they wanted.
