Iran: Israel should withdraw from Golan Heights unconditionally

TEHRAN, May 24 (Xinhua) -- Iran said on Saturday that Israel should withdraw from the occupied Golan Heights without setting any conditions, the official IRNA news agency reported.

    "The Zionist regime (Israel) is not in a position to set conditions for withdrawing from Golan heights," Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was quoted as saying.

    Under the current circumstances, Israel has no option but to withdraw from occupied lands including the occupied Palestinian territories, Mottaki said.

    Mottaki made the remark at a joint press conference with exiled Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal at the Iranian Foreign Ministry building on Saturday.

    During talks between Mottaki and Mashaal, the two sides "strongly condemned the Zionists' atrocities and underlined the need to put an end to Gaza's siege," IRNA reported.
