Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has urged Muslim countries to boycott a planned US-sponsored Middle East peace conference next month.

He said the aim of the meeting was to bolster Israel’s position at the expense of the Palestinians

‘Mischievous deception’

During a sermon at a mosque in Tehran, Ayatollah Khamenei said the Palestinians see the conference as a hoax which will bring them no benefit.

"How could other governments of the region approve of this conference? They should regard it a mischievous deception as well," he said.
