Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas

(Worthy News) - The Palestinian Authority is looking forward to developing its relations and strengthening mutual trade with Iran, a senior PLO official, Ahmed Majdalani, said Sunday after meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif in Tehran, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Majdalani said he delivered a letter from PA President Mahmoud Abbas to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, which was relayed through Zarif, that deals with the current situation in the Palestinian territories and "Israeli assaults against our people and their holy sites, as well as bilateral relations between the two sides."

Majdalani said he also discussed with the Iranian foreign minister the ongoing dispute between the PA and Hamas, expressing hope Iran would use its influence to end the dispute.

Palestinian sources said Abbas dispatched the senior PLO official to Iran also to discuss the recent nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers. [ Source ]
