Lebanon’s Higher Islamic Shiite Council denounced on Saturday all the US sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran, highlighting those which targeted the Astan Quds Razavi.
In a statement, the Council stressed that the US decision targets the religious sanctities and comprises an act of unprecedented, serious hostility that provokes the feelings of Muslims and violates the international laws and norms as well as the religious and cultural values.
The statement called on the US administration to undo the illegitimate and illegal decision and abandon and abandon its hostile conduct as the Astan Quds Razavi reflects a sublime religious value for the Muslims and a cultural value for the entire humanity.
The Council also urged the UNESCO to condemn the US decision and assume its responsibility in preserving this cultural landmark with its educational role and scientific and civilizational status.
