PA President Abbas to meet Hamas leader Mashaal in Qatar

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will meet with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal in Qatar on Sunday, AFP quoted Fatah party spokesman Azzam al-Ahmad as saying Wednesday.

According to Ahmad, the two Palestinian leaders will negotiate potential "reconciliation measures" with the goal of forming a government. They will also discuss issues resulting from the "failure of talks” with Israel.

Ahmad also said that a meeting originally scheduled for February 2 had been delayed indefinitely, according to AFP.
