Iran said on Wednesday resistance groups around the world like those in Gaza had the right to have access to weapons to fight against colonialists.
"A government or a people who would like to defend themselves, it is very natural they will do their utmost to get weapons from whatever place possible," Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said in a speech on Gaza.
Mottaki added that Israel's goals in Gaza had been to wipe away the resistance and also to destroy the defensive capability of the resistance.
"Resistance struggles around the world, those who struggle against colonialists, it is their right to defend themselves and to stand up to attacks by the enemy and to secure the release of their land, to continue with their struggle," Mottaki said.
"And to do that it is their natural right to have access to weapons," Mottaki said in the speed broadcast live and translated into English by Iran's Press TV.
