Carter Welcomes Fatah-Hamas Reconciliation

Former president Jimmy Carter of the United States welcomed, Thursday, the reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas.

Carter said the reconciliation must not be viewed as damaging to the two-state solution which would create a Palestinian Authority state. On the contrary, he said, any lasting peace with Israel must be based on an agreement with a democratic and united Palestinian Authority government.
