As part of the plan, which US President Donald Trump has dubbed the 'deal of the century,' a U.S.-led conference will be held next week in Bahrain on proposals for major investments in the Palestinian economy. Iranian state news agency IRNA quoted Larijani as saying, "Trump wants to make a deal on the fate of the Palestinian people. While toying with a nation’s dignity is scandalous, this will strengthen resistance movements as Palestinians realize that they can only succeed through resistance."
