Iran's foreign minister and the political head of Hamas discussed on Friday a recent deal between the UAE and Israel to normalize relations.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that in a phone call, Iran's Jawad Zarif said Tehran stood by Palestinians and that the agreement was unacceptable, according to a statement by Hamas.
"We're confident that the heroic Palestinian people, Arab and Muslim worlds are strong enough to foil this agreement," Zarif said.
Ismail Haniyeh, for his part, thanked Iran for defending Palestinians' rights.
"Palestinian people stand up for their cause and resistance," Haniyeh stressed.
The deal to normalize UAE-Israeli ties was announced by US President Donald Trump on Thursday, forestalling Israel's controversial plans to annex large swathes of the occupied West Bank.
