GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Independent Palestinian political leaders and some faction representatives will travel to Cairo on Friday for a meeting on implementing the national reconciliation agreement, independent leaders said.

Yasser Wadiya, head of a coalition of independents, said Thursday that the politicians will meet with the Egyptian and Arab League leadership to help implement the long-stalled deal.

President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah and Khaled Mashaal of Hamas met face-to-face in Cairo on Wednesday, for the first time in over a year.

They also met separately with Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi, and an Egyptian official said the leaders agreed to implement the Egyptian-sponsored deal from 2011.

West Bank independents chair Khalil Assaf welcomed the meeting as positive.
