AZA CITY - A reconciliation deal between rival Palestinian groups Fatah and Hamas must be implemented in a “thorough and honest” way, members of Hamas’s leadership said on Wednesday. “We stress the need for thorough and honest implementation of the reconciliation agreements of Cairo and Doha to end the division and unify the national front,” they said in a statement after meeting in Cairo. Their statement came as Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal prepared to hold talks with Fatah head and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on continuing efforts to implement a reconciliation deal the two groups signed in Cairo in May.
