The Iranian foreign ministry said on Monday that U.S. president's recent Middle East peace plan, also known as the Deal of the Century, pays no heed to the Palestinians' rights.
"The Deal of the Century is one of the shameful proposals and initiatives by the United States," Abbas Mousavi, the ministry spokesman, said at his weekly press conference.
The U.S. plan is "an imposed peace and sale of the Palestinian territory," Mousavi added.
"Iran will side with the Palestinians in liberating al-Quds (Jerusalem)," he noted.
On Jan. 29, U.S. President Donald Trump revealed his long-awaited Middle East peace plan, which promises to keep Jerusalem as Israel's undivided capital, proposes an independent Palestinian state and recognizes Israeli sovereignty over West Bank settlements.
