Palestinian factions” leaders meet Egyptian officials Tuesday

Secretary General of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) Nayef Hawatmeh will discuss here Tuesday with Egyptian officials ways to end the Palestinian division.

Secretary General of the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF) Samir Ghawsha and his accompanying delegation, who arrived to Cairo Monday, will also hold talks on the issue with Egyptian officials on Tuesday, with hopes to end the tension between the Palestinian Fatah and Hamas movements.

Hawatmeh had said upon arriving to Cairo on Monday that the visit of the DFLP delegation was a response to an Egyptian invitation to all Palestinian fractions.

He said that DFLP presented a paper to the Egyptian officials with a proposed solution that involved forming a Palestinian government approved by all movements and reforming the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) through elections.

Similarly, Ghawsha said that PPSF presented to the Egyptian officials a written proposal on ways to solve the conflict and achieve Palestinian unity, adding that the paper would be discussed on Tuesday with Egyptian Intelligence Chief Omar Suleiman.

Deputy Secretary General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) had said he met Suleiman on Monday as part of the ongoing negotiations between Egyptian officials and representatives of Palestinian groups.

Talks, that were launched last week with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), will conclude with a meeting with Fatah and Hamas leaders.

It is expected that Egypt will call, after the talks, for a thorough Palestinian dialogue after the holy month of Ramadan.
