Germany on Friday welcomed a power-sharing agreement between rival Palestinian factions as a "step in the right direction." The German government thanked the Saudi king for his efforts at a summit in Mecca to help hammer out the accord reached between the Hamas and Fatah political factions. It said the deal carried with it the hope that a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians could finally be reached. "We see this as a first step in the right direction," government spokesman Ulrich Wilhelm said at a regular news briefing.
