Moscow hails the deal on restoring Palestinian unity reached by rival factions Fatah and Hamas in Cairo on Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry was quoted by TASS news agency as saying Friday.

The talks are part of the Egyptian President's effort to achieve a Palestinian reconciliation as a necessary step to restarting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

"The legitimate government, the government of consensus, will return according to its responsibilities and according to the law", Fatah delegation chief Azzam Al-Ahmed said at the signing ceremony in Cairo.
