At a time when the Israel-Gaza conflict has claimed numerous lives of innocent civilians on both sides, Iran Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has written a letter to the BRICS countries, including India, urging them to call for a halt in the attacks on the Gaza strip.
The countries that are part of the bloc are Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. Moreover, Iran was admitted to the group during the BRICS summit in South Africa in August this year, along with five new members from 2024 onwards: Argentina, Ethiopia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran stated in a news release, “Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hossein Amirabdollahian, sent separate letters to the foreign ministers of the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), expressing deep concern over the atrocities committed by the Zionist regime in Palestine.”
“He urged for proactive and constructive intervention by the BRICS member countries to halt the attacks in the Gaza Strip, prevent crimes against humanity, and hold the aggressors accountable,” the release added.
In the letters sent by Amirabdollahian to the BRICS countries, which also includes India, he has called the Israeli retaliatory actions “part of the crimes committed against the oppressed Palestinian people.”
“The letters highlighted the illegal usurpation of Palestinian lands, mass killings, destruction of homes and farms, assaults on medical facilities, as well as the arrest, torture, and humiliation and attacking the dignity of men, women, and even children by the occupying regime. Amirabdollahian stressed that these actions are part of the crimes committed against the oppressed Palestinian people,” Iran Foreign Ministry release read.
Calling for prioritisation of situation in Gaza, the Foreign Minister of Iran emphasised the role of BRICS and other significant post-western alliances like the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Eurasian Union, SICA, ASEAN, and others.
