TEHRAN (ISNA) - Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniya said gun is Palestine's only response to the Zionist regime.

Rejecting any compromise with Zionist regime, Haniya said, "Gun is our only response to Zionist regime. In time, we have come to understand that we can obtain our goals only through fighting and armed resistance and no compromise should be made with the enemy."

Also regarding Fatah-Hamas compromise, he said resistance is one of the basic principles of Palestinian nation.

Palestinian Prime Minister speaking in Iranian state TV, said, "Path of resistance continues and if we make any compromise, it is for resistance and obtaining Palestinians' rights."

He asserted Islamic Awakening developments which took place in the Arab World shows the genuineness of the way as adding resistance strategy still continues and, "we have not changed the strategy."

Palestinian Prime Minister said, "Presence of Zionist regime inside Palestine is the root of all regional problems and this presence poses a threat not only to Palestine but also to the whole region."

He added now 6,000,000 Palestinians are living beyond Palestine's borders which should return to the country and their return is possible only through resistance.

Haniya has left Iran Sunday after talks with Iranian authorities including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei.

Haniya also joined Iranians' massive demonstration held Saturday nationwide to celebrate Islamic Revolution anniversary, where he said Hamas would not recognize Zionist regime.
