Bilateral dialogue between Fatah and Hamas is taking place from a national perspective, the secretary of Fatah’s central committee, Jibril Rajoub, announced yesterday.

Responding to rumours about “disputes in the Fatah-Hamas national dialogue,” Rajoub stressed the claims were “baseless”.

“We are planning a nationally-focused bilateral framework for all the Palestinian people,” he pointd out,  adding that the potential outcomes would be “national”.

Fatah and Hamas’ recent agreement, he continued, would turn into a “national consensus.” “The PA will not set a date for elections until all factions agree on a national action,” he explained.
