Also regarding Fatah-Hamas compromise, he said resistance is one of the basic principles of Palestinian nation.
“Path of resistance continues and if we make any compromise, it is for resistance and obtaining Palestinians’ rights,” he added in an interview with Iran’s state-run tv.
He asserted Islamic Awakening developments which took place in the Arab World shows the genuineness of the way, and addedd resistance strategy still continues and “we have not changed the strategy”.
Palestinian Prime Minister said, “Presence of Zionist regime inside Palestine is the root of all regional problems and this presence poses a threat not only to Palestine but also to the whole region.”
He added now 6,000,000 Palestinians are living beyond Palestine’s borders which should return to the country and their return is possible only through resistance.
In relevant remarks on Sunday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had also in a meeting with Haniya stressed Iran’s continued support for the Palestinian nation, and said resistance is the only way to liberate Palestine from the occupation of the Zionist regime.
