Tehran(IP) - The Palestinian embassy in Tehran issued a statement, condemning Britain's actions accusing Hamas of terrorism.

Iran PressIran news: The Palestinian embassy in Tehran issued a statement, saying: "The embassy of the state of Palestinian in Tehran strongly condemns the decision of the British government labeling a Palestinian Resistance Group (Hamas) as a "terrorist" organization.

"Instead, on the anniversary of the Palestinian independence, we expected the British government to fully recognize the Palestinian state", said the statement.

Since the number of countries which have recognized the Palestinian state is greater than the number of countries that have recognized the Zionist regime, this could have corrected the history of Britain, which is the cause of the atrocities we have suffered from for the past 73 years, the statement added.

The British Home Secretary Priti Patel on Friday has announced she is seeking to declare the whole of Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) a terrorist organization.

Hamas responded in a statement, saying, “Instead of apologizing and correcting its historical sin against the Palestinian people … [Britain] supports the aggressors at the expense of the victims.”

Hamas has condemned a move by Britain towards banning the group as a terrorist organization.
