Cairo – Egyptian Intelligence Chief Omar Soleiman will meet in Cairo with a delegation from the Palestine Democratic Union on Wednesday to discuss ways to end the inter-Palestinian conflict.
This meeting comes almost two weeks after Egypt’s first bilateral meeting with a delegation of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group.
‘Our party values the role Egypt plays to end the state of division that took place after the Islamic movement Hamas took over the Gaza Strip,’ Saleh Raafat, Secretary General of the Palestine Democratic Union, told the official MENA news agency on Tuesday after he arrived in Cairo.
Soleiman has already met with delegations of several Palestinian groups including the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
‘Our party is ready and willing to take part in the all-inclusive dialogue to be held in Cairo,’ Raafat said.
Egypt is to hold separate talks with individual Palestinian factions throughout Ramadan, while talks between all Palestinian groups are to resume after the Muslim holy month Ramadan, which started on September 1 in Egypt.
