Gaza, Al Ray - Secretary-General of the Arab League, Nabil El-Araby, called Tuesday on the international community to support the new Palestinian unity government.
In a press statement, Araby congratulated the President of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister, Rami al-Hamdallah, on the announcement of the government.
He hoped the government to be able to continue the steps required to maintain the Palestinian national reconciliation.
The international community should help the government re-build the Palestinian institutions, remove the effects of the Palestinian division, and unify the Palestinian political he stated.
Araby condemned the Israeli government’s position on the consensus government, which, he said, undermines peace efforts, and prevents the establishment of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with [occupied] East Jerusalem as its capital.
