Palestinians said on Tuesday they were ready to form a unity government and expected to unveil its new cabinet at a meeting between President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal in Cairo next week.

Leaders from the two factions met for several hours in Cairo on Tuesday to discuss forming the new government agreed under a reconciliation deal reached in April.

“The prime minister’s name and that of the ministers will be announced before the people on Tuesday (next week),” Hamas’s deputy politburo head Mousa Abu Marzook, told Reuters in an interview.

Earlier on Monday, a Palestinian negotiator said that talks between Hamas and Fatah in Cairo had broken off until next week without an agreement over a new Palestinian prime minister.
