Paradoxically, Fars News Agency reports that in a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, President Hassan Rouhani claimed that “Iran always stresses using dialogue to resolve regional problems.” Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in a conversation with the Malaysian foreign minister, made remarks that could be interpreted as endorsing either “dialogue” or Khamenei’s call for military assistance. He emphasized the need for Muslims to “help the Palestinian people” and “exert pressure on the Zionist regime,” according to Tasnim News Agency.
