Chairman of Iran-Palestine friendship group in the Iranian parliament says a two-urgency bill the parliament passed on recognizing al-Quds as permanent capital of Palestine aims to say that no power may harm the status of the city.
Iranian lawmakers have approved a double-urgency bill that recognizes al-Quds ('Jerusalem') as the permanent capital of the state of Palestine.
Speaking to the Quds news agency, Amir Khojasteh said even the US allies avoided supporting its recognition of the al-Quds as the capital of Israel.
He said Israel has no place in the future of the region, adding an international movement is in the making against the US government following its recognition decision.
He said Israel was going to perish.
The parliamentary motion was passed by 187 votes in favor, 15 against and 9 abstentions from a total of 233 MPs present in an open session of the parliament on Sunday.
The measure will be annexed to Article 1 of a legislation that stipulates the Islamic Revolution's support for the Palestinian nation.
