BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri expressed his support for Palestinian reconciliation in a telephone conversation with Gaza-based senior Hamas official Ismail Haniyeh, the Future Movement leader’s press office said in a statement Wednesday.

“Hariri expressed his support for all efforts leading to Palestinian reconciliation, stressing the necessity of putting aside all differences and uniting the Palestinian and Arab actions to confront Israeli plots, aggressions and ambitions in the Arab region,” the statement said.

Hariri, who is currently in Saudi Arabia, spoke with Haniyeh Tuesday. In their conversation, the two discussed moves to bridge the gap between Hamas and Fatah, as well as the overall situation in the region.

The former prime minister also received a call from Hamas official in Lebanon Osama Hamdan for the same purpose.
