Palestine, (Pal Telegraph) – Delegations from Hamas and Fatah will meet Wednesday in Cairo, said PLO Central Committee Member, Azzam al-Ahmad.
Al-Ahmad, speaking to Voice of Palestine radio, said he will meet Hamas leader Khaled Mashal and his deputy Musa Abu Marzouk.
“The meeting was scheduled before, but some Hamas officials and spokesmen’s negative statements in the Gaza Strip affected setting the date,” al-Ahmad said.
He added that the meeting will discuss the details of the prisoners exchange deal between Israel and Hamas, which will release Shalit in exchange for the release of more than 1000 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli prisons. The meeting will also discuss the implementation of the reconciliation agreement.
Al-Ahmad noted that any obstacle against proceeding with the political process is gone, following the swap deal, since most Western countries had so far pressured the Palestinian leadership against the reconciliation because of the issue of the Israeli soldier, Shalit, held by Hamas.
