Zarif says Israeli occupation of Palestine will not last long
Zarif made the remarks via his official twitter account late on Tuesday in response to claims made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said Iran is responsible for "darkness descending" on the Middle East.
"Despite Netanyahu’s claims, the fact is that illegal occupation lies at the heart of most of the calamities in our region. Historically, occupying another’s land has never been sustainable. This occupation, too --and the apartheid system that perpetuates it-- will not last long," tweeted Zarif.
