Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has urged Muslim states to “at least cut off political ties with Israel for a limited period of time”, the Tasnim news agency reported on Sunday.
“Some Islamic governments have condemned Israeli crimes in assemblies while some have not. This is unacceptable,” Khamenei said.
Earlier this month, Khamenei called on Muslim-majority countries to block oil and food exports to Israel.
During a joint summit between members of the Organisation for Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League in Saudi on 11 November, Muslim-majority states did not agree to impose sanctions on Israel as requested by Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi.
“Islamic governments should at least cut off political ties to Israel for a limited time,” Khamenei added.
Khamenei made his latest comments while attending an exhibition showcasing 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.
