Independents to update Hamas, Fatah on Cairo talks

April 16, 2011 12:05 P.M. (Updated: April 16, 2011 9:14 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A group of independent Palestinian political figures will meet with Hamas and Fatah to update them on their efforts to reconcile the parties in Cairo, said Abdul Aziz Ash-Shaqaqi, head of the delegation.

The group is part of a non-affiliated movement to pressure an end to Palestinian internal division. They met with Egyptian and Arab leaders to discuss ways to achieve national Palestinian unity and ease the siege on Gaza.

Ash-Shaqaqi said the delegation told Egyptian officials about ongoing efforts to break the deadlock in reconciliation efforts between Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip and Fatah, which leads the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.

The independent figures also met with President Mahmoud Abbas in Cairo, Ash-Shaqaqi said.
