In a press release, a copy of which was sent to MEMO, Al-Nono announced: “This tour is aimed at mobilising political support for the Palestinian cause, particularly the status quo in Jerusalem, amid the Israeli aggression on the city and the ‘deal of the century’.”
Regarding Hamas’ relations with Egypt, Al-Nono divulged that it is “pivotal” to the Palestinian cause and people, and denied that there was a rift between his movement and Egypt, over Haniyeh’s visit to Iran.
Hamas’ ties with Egypt “have reached a state of stability, cooperation and coordination,” Al-Nono disclosed in the press release, noting that Haniyeh “gives special importance to this strong and growing relationship.”
Regarding Hamas’ relations with other states, Al-Nono reiterated that his movement is “open to everyone and does not interfere in the internal affairs of any country,” adding that Hamas had never established ties with any country, at the expense of another.
Hamas’ political and diplomatic action is part of their efforts to promote the interests of the Palestinian people and their cause, Al-Nono concluded.
