Jordan voices full support to Palestinian reconciliation

Jordan voices full support to Palestinian reconciliation”

Al-Nono said that Hamas' relations with Iran are strong and ever-growing, noting that the current visit by the Hamas delegation was part of both sides' efforts to further strengthen ties.

Lodhi said that the aspirations of the Palestinian people to live a life of freedom and dignity still remain a distant and elusive ideal, even after 50 years have passed since their homeland was illegally occupied by Israel.

Shortly after the Palestinian unity government was formed, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reacted with similar sentiments, conditioning the acceptance of the deal on recognising Israel and disarming Hamas, which Israel considers a terrorist organisation.

Members of the delegation will meet senior Iranian officials over the next several days, a member of Hamas movement said on condition of anonymity.

Regarding the first and second demands, he said, "We're not in the stage of recognition; rather we are now in the stage of preparing to eliminate the Zionist entity".

"The delegation, led by Hamas deputy chief Saleh Arouri, arrived in the Iranian capital at noon today [Friday]", the statement read.

The Egyptian Intelligence Directorate helped Hamas and Fatah reach an agreement on October 12 to restore the Palestinian Authority's governing authority over the Gaza Strip.

Both the U.S. and Israel have called on Hamas to disarm, recognize Israel and cut off ties with Iran as prerequisites for future negotiations with the Palestinian unity government.

They each have reiterated long-standing demands by the worldwide community that Hamas renounce violence and recognize Israel's right to exist - conditions the militant group rejects.

Hamas has fought three wars with Israel since 2008.
