In a statement released on Friday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry strongly condemned the establishment of diplomatic relations between the UAE and the Zionist regime of Israel, describing it as a strategic stupid move made by Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv which would undoubtedly strengthen the axis of resistance in the region.
The statement underlined that the oppressed people of Palestine and all free nations in the world will never forgive the normalization of ties with the usurping and criminal regime of Israel and aiding and abetting the regime's crimes.
"Undoubtedly, the blood shed unjustly during seven decades of resistance for the liberation of the holy Palestinian territory and the first qibla of Muslims (qibla is the direction Muslims face when praying) will haunt those betraying the cause of Palestine sooner or later," it added.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran considers Abu Dhabi's shameful move to normalize relations with the fake, illegitimate and anti-humane Zionist regime as a dangerous measure, warns against any interference from the Zionist regime in the Persian Gulf region's equations, and declares that the Emirati government and the other governments siding with it must accept responsibility for all of the consequences of this move."
The Iranian Foreign Ministry also expressed confidence that history will show how the strategic mistake made by the Zionist regime and the move by the UAE to stab the Palestinian people and all Muslims in the back unfairly would backfire, strengthen the axis of resistance, and maximize unity and solidarity against the Zionist regime and regional reactionaries.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs further advised the rulers who are inside glass palaces and claw at the faces of Palestinians and other oppressed people of the region like Yemenis to wake up and not go the wrong way in realizing their friends and foes.
The United Arab Emirates and Israel have reached a deal that will lead to a full normalization of diplomatic relations.
The agreement came after a phone call between US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi.
