Ismail Haneya, Prime Minister of the unity government sacked by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas last week, on Friday called on Fatah movement for an unconditional national dialogue.
Haneya manifested his demand in a telephone conversation with Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Salleh late Friday evening, Haneya's office in Gaza said in a statement.
Haneya was quoted as saying that the only way to end the recent crisis is through dialogue without preconditions, adding that the focus of the talks should not be the winners or losers.
"The wide national dialogue should focus on the establishment of a united Palestinian government," the statement quoted Haneya as saying.
Last week, Haneya's Islamic Hamas movement militarily took control of all the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) security headquarters, including Abbas' headquarters in the Gaza Strip.
In response, Abbas dissolved Haneya's national unity government and decreed to form an emergency government in the West Bank. Abbas refused to hold any talks with either Haneya or other Hamas political leaders.
Gaza Strip now remains in the grip of Hamas movement, while the West Bank is fully controlled by Abbas and Fatah movement. The Arab league has formed an inquiry committee to investigate the Palestinian crisis.
