Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas lashed out at Iran on Friday, blaming Tehran for being behind the latest failure to reconcile his secular Fatah movement with its Isalamist rival Hamas.

"Iran doesn't want Hamas to sign the Cairo reconciliation document," Abbas said during a meeting in the Tunisian capital.

Fatah and Hamas struggled for months to reach a unity deal under Egyptian mediation, but the efforts collapsed late last year when Hamas refused to agree to a proposal that was signed by Fatah.

Abbas said that while Hamas' leaders had initially indicated their approval of the document, they later began putting forth excuses to refuse to sign.

The Fatah leader said his goal was to "pull our people out from Iranian tutelage".

"Abbas said that while Hamas' leaders had initially indicated their approval of the document, they later began putting forth excuses to refuse to sign."

It took about a year for Egypt to broker a group of issues for an agreement. When Egypt compiled the issues into an agreement the issues had been changed from the original into those that would favor Fatah.

Of course Hamas will not sign and it has nothing to do with Iran.

TEHRAN, (PIC)-- An Iranian official has said that his country was ready to help in achieving inter-Palestinian reconciliation, the Iranian official news agency said on Sunday.

It quoted the official in the foreign ministry as saying that Iran was prepared to help in reaching an understanding between Fatah and Hamas.

He said that Iran's principled stand was backing unity of all Palestinian factions.

The statement was in response to a statement on Friday by Mahmoud Abbas, the Fatah leader and former PA chief, in which he said that Iran was impeding efforts to forge Palestinian reconciliation, and said that Iran does not want Hamas to sign the Egyptian reconciliation document in Cairo.
