Hamas Official: Mashaal and Abbas to Meet Next Week


A senior Hamas official said, Thursday, that preparations are being made for a meeting between Hamas politburo leader Khaled Mashaal and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. The anonymous official told the Hamas web site that there are contacts between Hamas and Abu Mazen's Fatach faction to determine an exact time and place for the meeting, although the time will apparently be sometime next week.

Among the items to be discussed will be the start of implementing their reconciliation agreement from May.
