NEW DELHI: Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi during a call with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, urged India to use "all its capacities" to end the Israeli actions in Gaza amid the ongoing conflict.


According to the Iranian readout of the call between the two leaders, Raisi recalled India's struggles against Western colonialism and the country's position as one of the founders of the Non-Aligned Movement in the world.

"Today, India is expected to use all its capacities to end the Zionist crimes against the oppressed people of Gaza," the statement read.

The Iranian President further stated that Tehran supports any global joint effort for an immediate ceasefire, lifting the blockade and providing aid to the oppressed people of Gaza.

"The continuation of the killing of the Palestinian people has infuriated of all the free nations of the world and this killing will have extra-regional consequences," he stated.

He further said that the killing of oppressed and innocent women and children, attacks on hospitals, schools, mosques, churches and residential areas are "condemned and unacceptable" from the point of view of any human being,

"Palestinian resistance groups have a legitimate right to confront the occupation of the usurping Zionist regime and all countries must support the Palestinian people's struggle for freedom from oppression," the Iranian readout quoted Raisi as saying.

He added, "How come that the struggle of European countries against Nazi Germany is an admirable and heroic act, but the resistance of the Palestinian people against the child-killing and criminal Zionist regime is condemned?!"
