The head of Hamas’ politburo, Khaled Meshaal, arrived to Cairo on Wednesday to lead a delegation coming from Morocco for a two-day visit.
On Tuesday evening, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived in Cairo coming from Rome. He was received by Electricity Minister Hassan Younis and Palestinian Ambassador to Egypt Barakat al-Farra.
Abbas will offer his congratulations to President Mohamed Morsy for his election victory. They will also tackle recent developments related to the Palestinian cause in light of efforts made by Egypt to reconcile differences among the Palestinian factions.
No information was provided about whether Abbas and Meshaal will meet or not, although leaders from the two movements had earlier announced that Meshaal and Abbas would meet in Cairo to mull Palestinian reconciliation efforts.
By late June, Azzam al-Ahmad, a member of Fatah’s central committee, said Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal were waiting for Egypt to set the date for the meeting and for President-elect Mohamed Morsy to officially take office.
