PFLP leaders meet with Arab league chief, Egyptian mediator

April 30, 2008 2:39 P.M. (Updated: April 30, 2008 2:39 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - High-ranking leaders from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) met on Wednesday with Egyptian intelligence chief Umar Sulaiman, who is working to broker a ceasefire between Palestinian factions and Israel.

The PFLP's deputy secretary general, Abdul-Rahim Malluh, said that PFLP leaders also met with the Arab League's Secretary General Amr Mousa to discuss efforts at restoring Palestinian unity.

Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahhar reiterated on Tuesday that his movement, which controls the Gaza Strip, is prepared to accept a bilateral ceasefire. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of Hamas' rival, Fatah, expressed quiet support for a ceasefire.

Malluh said priority should be given to bridging the gap between Hamas and Fatah. He added that the PFLP would not oppose any agreement that Palestinians unanimously agree on, especially if it ends the siege on the Gaza Strip.

Malluh said that the Yemeni president's initiative for Palestinian unity was discussed at the meeting with Amr Moussa.
