The European Union on Thursday said that it would need to "study the details" of a deal brokered between Hamas and Fatah to form a unity government, however it hinted that it would prefer Fatah to have the upper hand.

"We have consistently called for reconciliation and peace under the authority of [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud] Abbas as a way to end the division between the West Bank and Gaza and we have also consistently underlined the need for security and stability across the region," said Michael Mann, spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

Ashton's spokesman went on to say that she will be talking to partners both within the EU and the region in order to study the details of the agreement further.
