A delegation from the Palestinian group Fatah will arrive in Cairo on Friday for a new round of talks with Egyptian officials on Palestinian national reconciliation, Egypt's state-owned news agency MENA announced on Wednesday.
The delegation will include the head of the Fatah parliamentary bloc in the Palestinian parliament Azzam Al-Ahmed, the minister of civilian affairs in the Palestinian authority Hussein Al-Sheikh, and commissioner of international relations for Fatah Rohi Fatouh.
Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted Palestinian president and head of Fatah Mahmoud Abbas as saying that the delegation will share its vision with Egyptian officials on how to achieve Palestinian national reconciliation.
In a meeting of Fatah's central committee on Wednesday, Abbas said that Fatah demands that Hamas disband its administrative committee in Gaza and empower the national unity government in the Strip, as well as prepare for presidential and legislative elections.
Earlier this week, a delegation from Hamas arrived in Cairo to continue talks that started in February regarding the situation in Gaza and bilateral relations with Egypt.
