Iran criticizes Palestinian official remarks against Ahmadinejad

TEHRAN, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast criticized on Monday the recent remarks made by Palestinian presidency spokesman Nabil Abu Rdeineh against Iran, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"He (Rdeineh) should pay more attention to the words he uses in his remarks," Mehmanparast told Fars.

The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) on Saturday slammed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over his remarks about the relaunching of direct peace talks with Israel through the U.S. mediation.

During a massive rally on Friday to mark the Quds (Jerusalem) Day in Tehran, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas doesn't represent his people when he agreed to go for direct peace talks with Israel.

Ahmadinejad "doesn't have the right to question the legitimacy of President Abbas," Rdeineh said in a statement published by the Palestinian Wafa news agency.

Mehmanparast said that the Palestinian officials should not be trapped by the plots and conspiracies of the Zionist regime and their advocates, and pursue the rights of the oppressed Palestinian people, including Palestinian refugees' right of return to their homeland, according to Fars.
