CAIRO (AP) — A leading Palestinian official says rival groups Fatah and Hamas have agreed to form a national unity government in three months.
Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmed said both sides agreed on a timetable that begins with creating laws to govern elections.
Al-Ahmed spoke in Cairo after he met with a Hamas delegation led by Moussa Abu Marzouk. Tuesday's meeting was brokered by Egyptian intelligence officials.
The Hamas militant group controls the Gaza Strip, while the Western-backed Palestinian Authority governs autonomous areas in the West Bank.
The territories have been politically divided since 2007.
In 2011, Hamas and Fatah leaders signed an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation agreement that was not implemented. According to subsequent talks, the two factions were to form a national coalition government of independents to oversee legislative and presidential elections.
