RAMALLAH, June 19 (JMCC) - A summit between the leaders of Palestinian factions Hamas and Fateh was postponed Sunday, as representatives said that disagreements still remained between the two groups, reports the
Hamas' Khaled Meshaal and Fateh leader Mahmoud Abbas were scheduled to meet in Cairo on Tuesday to announce their pick for Palestinian prime minister to head a new cabinet.
But officials from both sides acknowledge there are still disagreements over who the prime minister will be. They say the meeting has been postponed indefinitely.
The decision is a setback to last month's unity deal between Hamas and Fatah. At that time, they pledged to end a four-year rift that has left the Palestinians with rival governments in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The officials spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity pending a formal announcement.
