Gaza – Ma'an – De facto government Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh hosted former national security adviser for Latin America Bob Pastor in Gaza City on Monday, officials reported.

He is also co-director of the Center for North American Studies and the Center for Democracy and Election Management at the university.

Government spokesman Tahir An-Nunu said Haniyeh and Pastor discussed political developments in the region and Palestinian reconciliation efforts. Haniyeh also addressed the effect of the Israeli-led siege on the region.
