Iran’s foreign minister says endeavors by Muslim and Arab countries can end the ongoing Israeli war crimes against the Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a news interview on Saturday night after he, along with Iran’s president Ebrahim Raeisi, attended a Joint Arab Islamic Extraordinary Summit on Israel’s aggression against Gaza in the Saudi capital of Riyadh.

“The meeting was held tardily. However, we believe that if the leaders of Muslim countries and the general secretaries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Arab League make necessary efforts, we can witness the cessation of war crimes by the Zionist regime at this juncture,” he said.

In a final communiqué, the summit condemned “the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip and the war crimes,” as well as the occupying regime’s “barbaric, inhumane and brutal massacres” perpetrated against the Palestinian people.

It also called on the UN Security Council to take “a decisive and binding decision” that ends the Gaza carnage.
