Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians a cover up for Israeli crimes against the Palestinian nation, Iranian news agency Press TV reported on Friday.
"The United States and the West just sit back and watch the suppression of the Palestinian nation, and yet they arrange talks for peace, what peace? Between which people?" Khamenei said addressing crowds at Teheran University, where he led Eid al-Fitr prayers.
Khamanei added that the Palestinians are stronger than they were 20 or 30 years ago and their resistance will eventually pay off and they will dismantle "the phony and fabricated Israeli regime" in the near future.
