Hamas and Fatah have secretly resumed reconciliation talks in an attempt to finalize an agreement, a Fatah spokesman said on Monday.
Ahmad Assaf said in a statement received by Ma'an News Agency that Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmad, who is in charge of reconciliation talks, spoke on Sunday with his Hamas counterpart Mousa Abu Marzouq.
The two followed up on discussions that began in Doha between al-Ahmad and Hamas chief-in-exile Khalid Mashaal.
Assaf's statement emerged following news reports claiming that Hamas and Fatah have already reached agreement on a unity government.
He made it clear that no agreement had yet been reached as of yet, while stressing that efforts are ongoing.Last Mod: 06 Ocak 2014, 16:01
