Palestinian factions sign reconciliation accord
The Algeria Declaration calls for bolstering the role of the Palestine Liberation Organization seeing as it is the only legal representative of the Palestinian people.
The delegations of the Palestinian factions in Algeria have arrived at a reconciliation agreement, Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported on Wednesday.
"The Algeria Declaration stresses the importance of Palestinian national unity, considering it a basis for resilience for the achievement of the aspirations of the Palestinian people," Al Mayadeen's correspondent added.
According to our correspondent, the signing of the declaration will be attended by Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune and the heads of the Palestinian delegation at the presidential palace.
The Algeria Delegation highlighted the importance of the Palestinian factions "taking practical steps to put an end to the divide and realizing national reconciliation in Palestine, as well as enshrining the principle of political partnership between all Palestinian forces via elections."
Furthermore, the declaration called for bolstering the role of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), seeing as it is the sole legal representative of the Palestinian people, highlighting the importance of the Palestinian factions coming together and collaborating to make the PLO's work more effective.
The document then stressed the significance of the heads of the Palestinian factions communicating together to facilitate the work of the national unity government by ending the divide so that elections could be held.
Algeria invited 14 Palestinian factions to attend the conference for a national dialogue on October 11 and 12 in Algiers.
That came after Tebboune stressed late last month that "Palestine is the core issue" for his country, pointing out that there is no "Algerian boy or elderly who does not support Palestine."
"Palestine is a national cause for Algeria, and we do not accept colonization" in it, adding that "we will continue supporting it even if it was colonized by the world's strongest power. Palestine is for the Palestinians, not for others," he underlined.
