Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Abul Gheit said Palestinian reconciliation remains a pressing necessity and a goal that will never be relinquished.
He was speaking at a meeting here on Wednesday with the man in charge of the Palestinian reconciliation file, Fatah Central Committee member Azzam Ahmed Azzam.
“Putting the Palestinian house in order and ending Palestinian division has become a must given the increasing challenges facing the Palestinian cause and people,” Abul Gheit said.
Abul Gheit and Azzam probed the latest developments of the Palestinian reconciliation file and obstructions standing in the way, Arab League Spokesman Mahmoud Afifi said.
The Arab League has, over the past years, called for an end to the Palestinian rift and welcomed all efforts exerted towards this end, especially Egypt’s efforts, Afifi added.
