PPP: Delegate to Cairo ceasefire talks not decided yet

July 30, 2014 5:27 P.M. (Updated: July 30, 2014 5:27 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Secretary General of the leftist Palestinian People's Party on Wednesday told Ma'an that the make up of the Palestinian delegation to ceasefire talks in Cairo had not yet been decided.

"There is an agreement to form a delegation but until now it has not been formed yet," Bassam al-Salihi told Ma'an.

Al-Salihi said that he held Israel responsible for the failure to achieve a lasting ceasefire until now.

He also said that a ceasefire agreement must include end of the siege on Gaza Strip, stressing that Israel must be pressured to stop the offensive.

Al-Salihi added that the unity government formed in April must be turned into "one government" formed of all Palestinian parties.
