Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas opened a meeting of his Fatah movement in Jordan on Wednesday to discuss the possibility of forming a unity government with the Hamas. A unity government would be "the only way out for all Palestinian factions to face the difficulties and hardships of the present moment," Fatah Central Committee member Salim Zaanoun told reporters ahead of the meeting. "We will also discuss the capture of the Israeli soldier and the ensuing Israeli attacks on Palestinian areas, which had their toll on the Palestinian infrastructure," added Zaanoun, who is the speaker of the Palestinian National Council. Abbas was scheduled to meet later Wednesday with Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis in the Jordanian capital, and with Jordan's King Abdullah II on Thursday.
