[ 06/02/2012 – 10:52 AM ]

DOHA, (PIC)– A well informed Palestinian source has affirmed media reports that a tentative agreement was reached between Fatah and Hamas in Doha naming Mahmoud Abbas as premier in addition to his current duties as PA chief.

The source told the PIC reporter on Sunday night that other reconciliation issues were discussed during the meeting between Abbas and Khaled Mishaal, the Hamas leader, which progressed in a positive atmosphere.

He said, however, no names were chosen for the ministerial portfolios in the expected government.

Political bureau member of Hamas Ezzet Al-Resheq had said that the Abbas-Mishaal meeting in Doha targeted discussing reconciliation files topped by the government formation, the PLO, political detention, and general elections.

He said in a press release on Sunday that Mishaal and Abbas opened their first meeting in the presence of Amir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani.
