Hamas, Fatah to meet next week

GAZA, Oct 24 (KUNA) -- Hamas and Fatah have agreed to meet next week to discuss security issues and inter-Palestinian reconciliation efforts, Hamas said in a statement Sunday.
The statement noted that the venue for the meeting has not been set yet, but it is most likely to take place in Damascus. The two factions were supposed to meet on October 20 in Damascus but it was cancelled due to an altercation between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad over Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations and Palestinian resistance.
The altercation happened during a recent extraordinary Arab summit held in Sirte in Libya. (end) mzt.nfm KUNA 241232 Oct 10NNNN
