( While the latest nuclear talks between Iran and the P5+1 powers took place in Vienna, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said during a Wednesday meeting in Tehran with Palestinian Parliament Speaker Salim Zanoun that one of Iran’s wishes as a nation is “liberation of the Holy Quds (Jerusalem).”

Rouhani said he hopes “the Palestinian nation and the entire Muslim world will find a serious solution to this occupation [by Israel] through unity and integrity,” according to Fars News Agency.

Iran and the world powers, meanwhile, agreed to meet again in Vienna on March 17.
