As a member of a special committee set up in 1947 which resulted in the Resolution 181 of the United Nation known as ""Resolution of Division""، Iran objected to the move. Although the opposition to the partition of Palestine had its ups and downs، the ultimate proposal of the opposition movement was to allow all Palestinians to hold a referendum on Palestine، rather than force a two-state solution as the way to resolve the issue. Although Iran''s approaches to the Palestinian issue in its international relations have varied before and after the Islamic Revolution in 1979، its solution to the crisis in Palestine has always emphasized on necessity of Palestine reunification. This article seeks to evaluate the role of Iran in the opposition to a two-state solution، with a particular focus on how the shifts in Iranian policy towards the matter have not affected its principal insistence on preventing Palestine from being partitioned.
