The Hamas movement on Thursday accused Fatah of sabotaging talks in Cairo aimed at restoring unity to the Palestinian government.

Meanwhile, senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath told Ma’an that there are “creative propositions that were presented and each movement needs to consult with its leadership on these proposals.”

He added that the talks were suspended until the end of April, adding that “we can’t say that this round of talks failed or succeeded,” but insisted that “the atmosphere at the talks was good.”
