Hamas on Wednesday welcomed the Palestinian Authority’s decision to join 20 international organizations and treaties as a “step in the right direction.”

A statement issued by Hamas in the Gaza Strip said that the Palestinian move should be part of a “general policy frame and joint national project” endorsed by an interim leadership of the PLO.

Hamas said that the decision should be followed by a series of steps, including halting all forms of negotiations with Israel, especially security coordination and the lifting of the blockade on the Gaza Strip.
