TEHRAN, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Foreign Ministry on Tuesday strongly condemned the U.S. peace plan for the Middle East.
The so-called Deal of the Century is the "betrayal of the century" and is "doomed to failure," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in a statement.
Mousavi urged the Muslim states to oppose the "shameful deal."
"Palestine belongs to the Palestinians," he said.
"The Zionist regime (of Israel) is an occupying regime, and the only way to settle the Palestinian cause is a referendum among the real inhabitants of the lands," the Iranian spokesman added.
U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday revealed the long-awaited political aspect of his Middle East peace plan, a proposal that has already been repeatedly refused by the Palestinians.
The plan proposes a "realistic" two-state solution and recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's "undivided capital," according to Trump.
