Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas reached a mechanism Tuesday on establishing a new government after two days of talks in Cairo, the official news agency MENA reported.

"The two factions agreed to implement everything they have agreed upon," MENA quoted an official statement as saying.

Fatah and Hamas held intensive meetings under the sponsorship of Egypt to work out necessary mechanism in order to implement the Palestinian reconciliation deal signed on May 4.

"The meetings were positive and reflected mutual cooperation and understanding to end the division as soon as possible," the statement added.

Fatah, Hamas and other major Palestinians factions signed the reconciliation agreement after talks in Cairo on all controversial issues, including the elections arrangement, the formation of an interim government and restructuring of security forces.
