A dispute has erupted between Hamas and Fatah over the political platform of a Palestinian unity government, Palestinian sources reported Sunday.

The dispute came as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal made preparations to hold another meeting in Cairo later this week to discuss the formation of a unity government and the implementation of the recent Qatari-brokered reconciliation agreement between the two sides.

On Saturday, Abbas told the Italian consul-general in Jerusalem during a meeting in Ramallah that a Palestinian unity government, which would be established under the terms of the Qatari-brokered deal, would abide by the PLO's political program.

Abbas said that the unity government would also honor all agreements that were signed between the PLO and Israel, including the Oslo Accords.
