The unity agreement between Hamas and Fatah is a "blessed, positive move," Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said Thursday according to the IRNA news agency.

Salehi said the move was "in line with the Palestinian nation's historic objectives" and also praised the new Egyptian government's role in mediating between the two factions.

The Iranian foreign minister added that the uniting force between the two groups is "resistance against the Zionist occupiers," IRNA reported, as well as unity among the Palestinian people themselves.

"Observing these two necessities would lead to the materialization of the Palestinian nation’s absolute rights,” IRNA quoted Salehi as saying.

Salehi also said he hoped that the reconciliation agreement would "lead to acceleration of the developments in the Palestine region and to acquiring great victories in confrontations with the ruthless occupiers."
