Fatah: Mursi invites Abbas to meet over reconciliation

Jan. 2, 2013 2:14 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 4, 2013 4:10 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- President Mahmoud Abbas received a formal invitation to meet his Egyptian counterpart Muhammad Mursi in Cairo next week, a Fatah official said Wednesday.

The meeting will focus on reconciliation between Abbas' Fatah party and their Hamas rivals, Fatah official Faysel Abu Shahla told Ma'an.

Fatah welcomes the invitation to resume the reconciliation dialogue, he said.

Despite signing a number of agreements to reconcile, Fatah and Hamas still run separate governments in the West Bank and Gaza. They split amid violent fighting in 2007.
