Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said Wednesday that the upcoming government will carry on the policies of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

Abbas made the remarks when meeting with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg in Ramallah.

Abbas' Fatah party and Hamas, the Islamic movement that doesn't recognize Israel, reached a reconciliation agreement in Cairo to restore Palestinian internal unity. The Egyptian-brokered pact envisions a transitional technocratic government preparing for elections within a year.

The Palestinian national agreement came as the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians have been derailed due to difference on the construction of Jewish settlements in the Palestinian territories.
