Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has decreed that any technological cooperation with Israel, including the use of Israeli software and hardware is prohibited, the state-run Fars news agency reported on Tuesday.
According to the report, Rouhani ordered the Iranian Interior, Intelligence, Foreign, and Defense ministries, as well as the Supreme National Security Council and the judiciary, to implement a law approved last week by Tehran’s parliament and the Guardian Council – an oversight body that ensures laws adhere to Islamic – that aims to “confront the hostile acts of the Zionist regime against peace and security.”
“Based on the first article of the bill, all Iranian bodies are required to use the country’s regional and international capacities to confront the Zionist regime’s measures, especially its warmongering and terrorist moves, siege (of Gaza), settlement construction, displacing the Palestinian people and occupation of countries’ lands, including Golan,” Hossein Naqavi Hosseini a member of the Iranian National Security and Foreign Policy Commission told Fars.
He further said that “any cooperation or spying for the Zionist regime is equal to enmity towards God and corruption on earth,” and that using Israeli software or hardware on Iranian platforms was forbidden.
