"We highly appreciate the position of our brothers in the National Progress (Takadum) Alliance, headed by Muhammad Rikan Al-Halbousi in reunifying and not listening to all the pressures that are still trying to keep us away from the joint work that serves our people." Al-Khanjar said in a statement.
