Spokesmen for rival Fatah and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) Tuesday denied respectively reports that the two movements'' leaders were holding secret dialogue in the Swedish capital of Stockholm.

Earlier media reports said that leaders of the two movements were holding secret talks in Stockholm to bridge the gaps between them and prepare for an extensive national Palestinian dialogue.

Fatah spokesman in the West Bank Ahmed Abdel Rahman told Palestinian Radio "Voice of Palestine" that "reports published by local Palestinian media are totally mistaken, inaccurate and untrue."

"No secret or announced dialogue with Hamas movement before Hamas regrets what it did in the Gaza Strip and brings the situation back to before June 14," said Abdel Rahman.

He also said that "in order to begin this dialogue between the two factions and also to guarantee that this dialogue would succeed, Hamas must be committed to the decisions issued by the Palestinian legitimate leadership."

Meanwhile, Hamas spokesman in Gaza Sami Abu Zuhri also rejected the reports.
