Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir has welcomed the Palestinian reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah as a victory for the Palestinian people and Arab nations, the Sudanese news agency reported.
The president made the remarks during a meeting with the Palestinian Presidential envoy Azzam Al-Ahmad who delivered a letter from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas regarding developments between the two parties.
During the meeting, Al-Ahmad stressed Abbas’ keenness to brief the Sudanese leadership on the Palestinian developments, considering Khartoum among the first countries to hasten dialogue between Hamas and Fatah.
He went on to brief Al-Bashir regarding the Palestinian struggle in east Jerusalem, attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque and illegal Israeli settlement activities in the occupied West Bank.
Fatah and Hamas signed a reconciliation agreement on 12 October under the auspices of Egypt. Last week, the Palestinian government announced that it had received full control of the border crossings in the besieged Gaza Strip as part of the agreement.
