Head of Change and Reform Bloc in the Palestinian Parliament, Mahmoud Al-Zahar, yesterday discussed mutual cooperation with Speaker of Tunisian Parliament Rachid Ghannouchi, a statement said.

Al-Zahar and Ghannouchi discussed mutual cooperation related to several issues, including the fight against the US ‘deal of the century’ and protecting the Islamic holy sites in Palestine from Israeli aggression.

During the phone call, Al-Zahar reiterated the “strength” of the historic Palestinian-Tunisian relations and hailed the stances of the Tunisian people, parliament and president related to the Palestinian cause.

Al-Zahar, the statement said, agreed with Ghannouchi to promote the concept of common work between Palestine and Tunisia through holding a joint parliamentary meeting or issuing a joint statement related to the common Palestinian-Tunisian relations.

Both officials also discussed mechanisms to activate the Association of Parliamentarians for Jerusalem, which aims to shed light on the sufferings of the holy city under Israeli occupation.
