Representatives of Palestinian resistance groups in Tehran have held a press conference to elaborate on the goals behind the UK decision to declare Hamas as a terrorist organization.

Representative of Hamas in Tehran Khaled al-Qaddoumi said the recent decision by Britain is politically-motivated.

He further said the UK has always supported the Zionist regime and Britain and global arrogance are to be blamed for all the crimes and brutalities against the Palestinians.

Meanwhile, representative of Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement in Tehran called on the international community to take more serious measure in condemnation of the UK decision against Hamas.

Recently, British Home Secretary Priti Patel announced that she was seeking to declare the whole of Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) a terrorist organization.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian condemned Britain's move, saying the rights of Palestinians cannot be trampled on by distorting facts.

In a statement, Hamas responded by asserting that instead of apologizing and correcting its historical sin against the Palestinian people, Britain supports the aggressors at the expense of the victims.

Palestinian resistance groups say the UK move is an unfortunate continuation of London’s bias in the face of the Israeli regime and its policies which are based on terror, massacre and destruction.
