Khater: National reconciliation must be comprehensive

[ 09/04/2011 – 06:44 AM ]

DAMASCUS, (PIC)– Political bureau member of Hamas Sami Khater affirmed that the Palestinian national reconciliation should be comprehensive and should tackle all issues.

He told the PIC on Thursday that concerned parties were acting toward reactivating the stalled reconciliation efforts, and that his movement welcomed such moves.

Khater revealed that contacts were made between Cairo and Hamas over the past few days in a bid to resume the reconciliation efforts.

Hamas welcomed the new Egyptian “positive” approach, which dealt with all Palestinian factions on equal footing, the Hamas leader underlined.

He pointed out that Fatah and its authority in the West Bank had asked Arab and regional parties to mediate in the issue based on the initiative of Mahmoud Abbas, the Fatah leader and de facto Palestinian president.

Khater noted, however, that Abbas’s initiative ignored key issues.
