Iran FM condemns UK's move against Palestinian Hamas

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian in a Twitter message condemned the UK's move to term the Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas as "terrorist".

"We condemn the UK's decision to declare the popular resistance movement of Hamas a terrorist organization," Amirabdollahian tweeted.

"Rights of Palestinians cannot be trampled on by distorting facts," he added.

He underscored that the only political solution for Palestine lies in holding a referendum among all indigenous residents.

Amirabdollahian's remarks came after British Home Secretary Priti Patel on Friday announced that she was seeking to declare the whole of Islamic Resistance Movement(Hamas) a terrorist organization.

The Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas has condemned themove by Britain towards banning the group as a terrorist organization.

In a statement Hamas responded by asserting that "instead of apologizing and correcting its historical sin against the Palestinian people, Britain supports the aggressors at the expense of the victims".
