Rajoub: We're Interested in Improving Ties with Iran


Fatah (PLO) Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub announced yesterday (Wednesday) his organization's interest in improving relations with Iran. Following a meeting in Teheran with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Rajoub said that the Palestinian Authority is "ready to renew ties with Iran." 

During the meeting with Rajoub, Zarif said that, "Israel is occupying itself with Iran's peaceful nuclear program in order to divert the world's attention from the crimes it continues to perpetrate against the Palestinian people."
