Talks between Fatah and Hamas leaders postponed with a new date to be set soon

Talks between president Mahmud Abbas, who heads Fatah, and Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal on a new Palestinian cabinet have been postponed, a Fatah official said on Sunday.

The talks were due to have taken place on Tuesday in Cairo, but Fatah representative Azzam al-Ahmed told AFP that the meeting had been put off.

"The meeting has been postponed until a new date is set in the coming days in order to assure the best atmosphere for the successful implementation of the reconciliation agreement," he said.
