Palestinian Factions to Give Abbas 48 Hours to Form National Unity Government

MOSCOW Palestinian factions, including the nationalist movement Fatah and the Islamist Hamas, agreed on Tuesday to give Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas 48 hours to form a government of national unity.

Azzam al-Ahmad, head of the delegation of Fatah, said at a press conference that factions agreed in Moscow to grant Abbas a period of 48 hours to start consultations to form the national unity government that precedes the formation of the Palestinian National Council.

The Fatah representative, who participated in the reconciliation talks in Moscow between the different Palestinian parties, stressed that in the last ten years of confrontation between Fatah and Hamas there have never been better conditions than now.

He recalled that last week different Palestinian factions agreed in Beirut on the need to create a government of national unity to overcome divisions.

In that regard, Fatah representatives expressed on Monday their desire to reach an agreement with Hamas to hold elections in June 2017, since no presidential and parliamentary elections have been held since 2005 and 2006, respectively, in Palestine.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has called on Palestinians to re-establish Palestinian unity and overcome ten-year-old divisions, to be able to hold negotiations with Israel.

Lavrov recalled that the past 10 years have shown that the lack of unity has a negative impact on the solution of the Palestinian problem.
