Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Qatari Prime and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani discussed reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah and the peace process during a meeting in Doha on Sunday.

The two leaders reviewed what the Palestinian reaction will be to a letter concerning the resumption of Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, which was sent to Abbas by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu earlier this month.

The Palestinian president also discussed bilateral relations with Qatar's prime minister, Palestinian Quds Press news agency reported.

Abbas visited the Gulf nation following a two-day trip to Egypt, where he met with Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, Egypt's military chief, and other senior Egyptian officials in Cairo.
