Mashaal, Abbas to overlap in Cairo, no meeting confirmed

Jan. 8, 2013 6:13 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 9, 2013 7:23 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Hamas’ chief-in-exile Khalid Mashaal arrived in Cairo on Tuesday evening, while Fatah leader President Mahmoud Abbas was set to arrive Wednesday morning, but the parties said they had not arranged to meet.

Member of Hamas’ politburo Izzat al-Rishiq said a Hamas delegation, headed by Mashaal, arrived in Cairo where they will follow up on reconciliation with Fatah in a meeting with Egypt’s President Muhammad Mursi.

Abbas is set to arrive in Cairo on Wednesday for a meeting with Mursi on the same issue.

Egypt’s ambassador to Palestine Yasser Othman said earlier this week that Mursi invited Abbas to visit Cairo on Wednesday. He said Abbas and Mursi would discuss several issues, including reconciliation.

However, senior Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmad said Tuesday that no arrangements have been made for a meeting in Cairo between Abbas and Mashaal.
