Iran’s Khamenei called on Muslim states to cut political ties with Israel for a ‘limited period’ – World ReadingS


DUBAI: Weeks after calling for an Islamic oil and food embargo on Israel, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday called on Muslim states with political ties to Israel to cut them off at least “for a limited time”, state media reported .

“While some Islamic governments condemned Israel’s crimes at the meetings, some did not. This is unacceptable,” Khamenei said, reiterating that the main task of Islamic governments should be to cut Israel off from energy and goods.

“Islamic governments should cut political ties with Israel, at least for a limited time,” Khamenei added.

At the joint summit between members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League held in the capital of Saudi Arabia on November 11, Muslim states did not agree on the imposition of comprehensive sanctions on Israel at the request of Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi.

Khamenei made his latest comments while attending an exhibition showcasing the “latest achievements” of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Aerospace Force, including the Fattah 2, said to be Iran’s first hypersonic missile.

Iran said it introduced its first indigenous hypersonic ballistic missile in June and could surpass the United States and Israel’s most advanced anti-ballistic missile systems.
