PA and Hamas welcome call from Arab summit to end dispute

The Palestinian Authority and Hamas Tuesday welcomed Qatar’s call for holding a mini-Arab summit to discuss ending the dispute between the two rival Palestinian parties.
The call was issued by Qatar’s emir, Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani in a speech he delivered at the Arab summit meeting in Doha.
The emir said that the mini-summit would be held in Cairo as soon as possible with the participation of representatives of the two Palestinian parties.
He said the summit, which would be attended by some Arab countries, would seek to set a timeline for implementing previous reconciliation agreements between the two sides.
