UNITED NATIONS, April 29 (Reuters) - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday cautiously welcomed a unity agreement aimed at ending the rivalry among ruling Palestinian factions, but stressed that it should not undermine peace with Israel.

"The Secretary-General welcomes efforts being made to promote Palestinian reconciliation and the important contribution of Egypt in this regard," UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a statement.

"He hopes that reconciliation will now take place in a manner that promotes the cause of peace, security and non-violence," he said.
