ISLAMABAD (Sputnik) – Iran’s parliament speaker Ali Larijani spoke about Trump’s Jerusalem move as well as Syrian peace settlement talks after meeting Russia’s State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin in Islamabad.
On Trump’s Jerusalem Decision

The United States’ decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will provoke aggression and “war” between Palestinians and Israelis, Iran’s parliament speaker Ali Larijani said on Sunday.

“People do not want to stay silent, there will be a rebellion, a war. This is a gamble, it is high time for [US President Donald] Trump to understand what is happening,” Larijani said on the sidelines of the conference devoted to the fight against terrorism.

The parliament’s speaker pointed out that the United States was trying to split the Middle Eastern region. He also refuted US remarks that Washington had defeated terrorism in Syria.
“That was you [United States], who created it [terrorism] there,” Larijani added.

On December 6, Trump announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and instructed the US State Department to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The decision caused mass criticism across the world.

On Geneva Talks

Tehran is not expecting a breakthrough in Syrian settlement at Geneva talks and views the Astana process as more prospective, Iranian parliament speaker Ali Larijani said Sunday.
