Haneyya: The national unity gov’t will be declared despite all obstacles


Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya said the contentious issues between the Palestinian parties regarding the formation of the interim unity government would be resolved soon despite all Zio-American pressures.

“In the last hours, some issues came to the surface, but they are under control. Our consultations and dialog will be ongoing in order to reach a national consensus on these issues and the final form of the government,” premier Haneyya stated in his Friday khutba (sermon).

The premier stressed that his Movement seeks a unity government receiving the consent of the Palestinian people and their national factions.

He expressed his understanding of the current popular fears and doubts resulting from the previous failed agreements, affirming that the national reconciliation, this time, would keep moving forward and see daylight soon.

“This time, we are determined to achieve our goal and get to our destination on sound and correct foundations,” Haneyya said.

In a related context, member of Hamas’s political bureau Mousa Abu Marzouk said that Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas might announce the birth of the unity government by the middle of the current week.

Abu Marzouk made his remarks in a news conference held on the sidelines of his meeting on Friday with national dignitaries and factional leaders in the Rafah area of Gaza.

He stated that the line-up of the unity government would be declared next Monday or Tuesday, affirming that Hamas and Fatah would overcome all differences between them.
