Head of Hamas political bureau Khalid Meshaal and the Palestinian ambassador in Tunisia expressed their thanks to the head of the Tunisian Islamist movement Ennahdah Rashid al-Ghannouchi for his efforts in facilitating the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement.
In a phone call Thursday, Meshaal updated Ghannouchi about the latest regarding the Palestinian issue. Meshaal discussed Ghannouchi's mediation efforts between both movements, which lasted for two months.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian Ambassador Salman al-Harfi thanked Ghannouchi for his contributions to the achievement of the reconciliation.
For his part, Ghannouchi congratulated Meshaal and Al-Harfi for the success of the reconciliation and stressed on the importance of achieving national unity and reinforcing it.
He reiterated that division between the people of the same nation weakens the "noble cause of the Palestinians." He said that there is no choice for the people of the same nation except reconciliation and acceptance of each other.
Hamas and Fatah leaders signed a reconciliation agreement on Wednesday in Gaza after seven years of divisions.
