Hamas Eager to Restore Tehran Ties

Palestine’s Hamas resistance movement is eager to improve ties with Tehran after a diplomatic gridlock caused by the Syrian crisis, Hamas Spokesman Husam Badran said on Tuesday. “Our relationship with Iran has a long history and, in fact, we have never cut ties with Iran. It is true that for a while, we have seen some cooling in ties amid the situation in Syria, but we have no disagreements on the Palestinian question,” Badran told reporters as cited by Sputnik. “Iran has always supported us and for the last two years we have been working on restoring our relations … We decided in Palestine that we would continue to strengthen our relations with Iran. For us, it is important.” The spokesman noted that the visit of a high-ranking Hamas delegation to Tehran in early August was a sign of improvement of bilateral ties. The delegation attended the swearing-in ceremony of reelected President Hassan Rouhani.
