NABLUS, (PIC)– Security coordination and meetings with the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) do not conform to Palestinian national reconciliation, Dr. Abdulsattar Qassem, professor of political science at Najah University in Nablus, said.
He told the PIC on Sunday that no reconciliation was possible under such circumstances, pointing to the presence of security agreements between the IOA and the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah.
Qassem said that there should be radical change within the Palestinian arena in order to materialize the reconciliation, underlining that the PA is financed by the West, which links funds to security coordination and negotiations with Israel.
The university professor, a former PA presidential candidate, said that the sources of financing and political alliances must change in order to achieve real reconciliation.
Qassem said that news of reconciliation on the media was not true, that is why the USA was still channeling funds, and Israel was still transferring money to the PA.
