RAMALLAH, Palestinian Territories: Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas said on Wednesday the unity pact between the Palestine Liberation Organisation and Islamist movement Hamas was compatible with peace talks with Israel.

"There is no incompatibility between reconciliation and the talks, especially since we are committed to a just peace on the basis of a two-state solution in accordance with the resolutions of international law," Abbas said in a statement issued by his office.
