Talking about several Arab and local initiatives that had failed to reconcile Hamas and Fatah, Fayyad said "all the plans were presumptive, expecting the reconciliation first and then restoring the national unity," adding under his plan, unity could be restored through one government and after that Hamas and Fatah can continue their talks for reconciliation.

"We cannot wait for long until they agree on everything, that's why one government taking care of the Palestinian people's interests and implementing the security vision is important as a first step towards unity," Fayyad said.

Fayyad agreed that mutual hostility left the two parties without even looking thoroughly at his vision and he had received negative responses, however, he said the responses "focused on the person who presented the ideas rather than the ideas themselves."
