Turkey could host mediation talks betweeen Fatah and Hamas
Turkey could very well be the venue for the next round of talks aimed at solving differences between Fatah and Hamas, said chief Fatah representative Azzam al-Ahmed, who chaired recent successful reconciliation talks with its Palestinian rival. "Turkey is a brotherly country, not just a friend. We need Turkey more than ever, and Turkey needs to be more active," he told Zaman, adding that Turkey may be able to bring the Palestinian sides together in its own country. Al-Ahmed urged Turkey to apply pressure to both sides and positively engage in discussions through dialogue.
