CAIRO: Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi will meet his Palestinian counterpart, Mahmoud Abbas, and Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal in Cairo today, Mursi’s office said.
Abbas and Meshaal will first “meet Egypt’s intelligence chief before holding a three-way meeting with President Mursi,” presidential spokesman Yasser
Azzam Al Ahmad, who is in charge of reconciliation efforts between his Fatah party, of which Abbas is head, said Abbas was travelling to Egypt at Mursi’s invitation to discuss the subject.
Meshaal and aides arrived in Cairo from Doha yesterday for a visit of several days, the official MENA news agency said.
