Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has called on Muslim states that maintain political ties with Israel to sever them for a “limited period”, the country’s state media reported on Sunday (19), weeks after he called for an embargo Islamic oil and food campaign against Israel.
“Some Islamic governments have condemned Israel’s crimes in assemblies, while others have not. This is unacceptable,” Khamenei said, reiterating that the main task of Islamic governments should be to cut Israel off from energy and goods supplies.
“Islamic governments should at least cut political ties with Israel for a limited time,” he added.
During a joint summit between members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League in the capital of Saudi Arabia on November 11, Muslim states did not agree to impose comprehensive sanctions on Israel, as requested by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.
Khamenei made his latest comments while attending an exhibition highlighting the “latest achievements” of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Aerospace Force, including the Fattah 2, a new version of what is said to be Iran’s first hypersonic missile.
Iran in June unveiled what it said was its first domestically made hypersonic ballistic missile, saying the equipment could bypass the most advanced U.S. and Israeli anti-ballistic missile systems.
