Palestinian premier Fayyad hails unity deal

(Israel Twitter)-— Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad on Wednesday welcomed a surprise unity accord between Fatah and Hamas but stressed the deal must be implemented on the ground immediately.


Happy moment, the signing of the the agreement by the Palestinian factions," he told reporters in the West Bank town of Ramallah of the deal, under which an interim government of independents is to be selected paving the way for elections in a year's time he say."


Salam Fayyad said the world would be watching the results of the agreement and it was key that both sides began to implement its terms straight away.
"All the world will see that the Palestinian Authority is going forward in one direction and this issue is very important," he said. "It's very important now to begin immediately to have a procedure on the ground.


US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday spoke with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad ahead of the planned signing in Cairo of a Palestinian reconciliation agreement between rival factions Fatah and Hamas on Wednesday, Israel Radio reported.


If things move in the right direction, we believe there won't be any justification for any international party to take a negative position against the reconciliation," he told Palestinian radio.
"Our peaceful struggle to end the occupation will continue, so I cannot see why the United States or any other international party would take punitive measures against the Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Liberation Organisation.
