Fatah officials arrive in Gaza for unity talks

June 2, 2013 10:02 P.M. (Updated: June 3, 2013 9:15 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two senior Fatah leaders arrived in the Gaza Strip on Sunday for reconciliation talks.

Nabil Shaath and Othman Abu Gharbieh arrived in Gaza to take part in talks with members from nationalist and Islamic political factions.

"We hope it gives a push to Palestinian reconciliation," Shaath told Ma'an. "Both reconciliation and the organizational position [of Fatah] are the priorities of the visit."

"We hope to end the visit with positive results for the Gaza Strip," he added.

Last month, Fatah and Hamas agreed to set a three-month timetable for forming a unity government.

Establishing a unity government and holding elections was one of the aims of a reconciliation deal the two nationalist movements signed two years ago, but it has never been implemented.
