Israel uses the the Iranian nuclear program as a way to distract the world from the "crimes" that it commits against the Palestinians, Iran charged on Tuesday.

"Under the pretext of Iran's peaceful nuclear energy [program], the Zionists have always tried to distract governments and nations' public opinion from their own crimes in Palestine," Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a statement, AFP reported.

Zarif made the remarks during a visit to Iran by the senior Palestinian Authority official Jibril Rajub, according to the report.
