DAMASCUS, Jan 21 (Reuters) - Syria is trying to ensure that Palestinian President
Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal meet in Damascus on Sunday,
a senior Hamas official said.

"We are seeing Syrian efforts at the highest level to convene this meeting," Hamas
politburo member Izzat al-Rishq said. "Syrian officials are doing their best to bring
the views of both sides closer."

Syrian Vice-President Farouq al-Shara held separate talks with Abbas and Meshaal
on Sunday, witnesses said. A meeting scheduled for late on Saturday was postponed
after officials failed to reconcile differences over a unity government and how it
would deal with Western demands.
