Hamas official: We will celebrate reconciliation in Egypt soon

Moussa Abu Markouz, Hamas' deputy politburo chief, said Hamas and Fatah officials have agreed to hold a second meeting next week in Damascus.

Abu Marzouk today told Kuwaiti Al-Jarida newspaper that “Egypt will invite all Palestinian factions to Cairo to sign the document of understanding, announcing Palestinian national reconciliation on a win-win basis.”

He added that “the way of current dialogue was agreed on in Mecca between Omar Suleiman, director of Egyptian general intelligence, and Khaled Meshaal, Hamas political leader.”

During the Mecca meeting and at another meeting in Damascus in which Meshaal met with Azzam al-Ahmed, senior Fatah movement official, three main issues were discussed, said Abu Marzouk. These included reformation of the PLO, election timing, and the formation of election, judicial and security commissions.

He concluded: “We will all celebrate Palestinian national reconciliation in Egypt soon.”
