Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf called the use of force "the only way to deal with the Zionist regime and force it to stop its aggression against Palestine," Tasnim reported.

Meeting with Algerian Assembly President Ibrahim Bougali on the sidelines of the 17th session of the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Algiers on Sunday, Ghalibaf called the Palestine issue the top priority of the Muslim world.

"Since the Zionist regime is only familiar with the language of force, measures must be taken against this regime to force it to stop its aggression against Muslims and the territories of Islamic countries," the Iranian parliament speaker added.

He also called for a new plan to expand economic relations between Iran and Algeria.

Iran can meet Algeria's needs in a wide range of areas, and Algeria can promote the Islamic Republic's trade ties with African states, Ghalibaf added.

For his part, Bugali stressed the leading role of Iran and Algeria among Islamic countries, saying that the two states can show the right image of Islam, given their great influence.

He also affirmed Algeria's support for the Palestinian cause and the restoration of Palestinian rights.

Algeria is also concerned about building unity among Palestinian groups, Bufali said, expressing support for Palestine's permanent membership in the United Nations.

The OIC conference, attended by the heads of parliaments of OIC member states, discusses several topics on its agenda, including opposing Israeli plans and protecting the al-Aqsa Mosque.
