Iran hails Palestinian truce

World Bulletin/News Desk

Iran greeted on Saturday the reconciliation pact between the two main Palestinian factions.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes any act of unity, solidarity and national reconciliation among Palestinians against the Zionist occupiers," foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said in comments carried by Iranian media.

But she made no direct reference to the deal between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas for a unity government.

"Iran backs any decision toward realisation of precious ideals against an aggressive and expansionist regime," the official IRNA news agency quoted her as saying.

The deal between Hamas and Abbas's Fatah party envisions agreement on a government of independent technocrats within five weeks and holding elections at least six months later.
