Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas plans to meet with President Mohamed Morsy on Wednesday after arriving in Cairo on Tuesday evening.
Palestinian Ambassador to Egypt Barakat al-Farra said that the two presidents will discuss the Palestinian situation and Israeli violations in the occupied territories, as well as the settlements and the pressure exerted on the Palestinians to return to negotiations without conditions.
Morsy will discuss with Abbas his conversation with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the peace process.
Sources told Al-Masry Al-Youm that as soon as he arrives in Cairo, Abbas will meet with Major General Mourad Mowafy, director of the General Intelligence Services.
According to sources, the Palestinian president will not meet with Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, head of the Supreme Council of Armed Forces. This would be the first time since the fall of former President Hosni Mubarak that Abbas visits Cairo and does not meet with Tantawi.
