Negotiator says not leaving Cairo until truce agreed

CAIRO (Ma'an) -- The head of the Palestinian negotiations team in Cairo Azzam al-Ahmad said Friday that the delegation will not leave Cairo until a final agreement is reached.

Al-Ahmad said after meeting the Palestinian delegation that "we are not with the escalation and we are willing to continue negotiations through our Egyptian brothers to achieve a final agreement that returns our rights."

He described this as meaning "lifting the siege on Gaza in all its forms and providing the children of Gaza an opportunity to live in dignity."

Al-Ahmad hoped the coming hours would be conclusive and not wasted like previous days, and he added that Palestinian demands are obvious and cannot be given up, referring to the seaport and airport.

He also said that Palestinians aren’t demanding anything new, because an airport and a seaport were previously agreed upon in the Oslo Accords.

Al-Ahmad explained that during the week’s stay in Gaza they did not hear the Israeli opinion on their demands, and only know what was published in the media.
