The first meeting between Palestinian rival Fatah and Hamas movements will be held within a week in Egypt, an official in the Fatah movement said on Sunday.

"We have agreed to hold our first meeting on implementing the reconciliation deal after the end of the current round of sessions of the Fatah Revolutionary Council," Azzam al-Ahmed, member of the Fatah Executive Committee, told the Voice of Palestine radio.

The meeting will discuss the forming of the government as well as the candidates to head the cabinet, he added.

Hamas and Fatah signed a reconciliation pact in Cairo on Wednesday to end four years of political division. Under the agreement, a technocratic government will be formed to prepare for general elections within a year.
