GAZA CITY – A delegation of top-level Hamas officials is to visit the Egyptian capital Monday for talks with President Mohammed Morsi, Palestinian officials said.
Hamas’s exiled supreme chief Khaled Meshaal is to head the joint delegation from the Gaza Strip and abroad, an official from Hamas, on condition of anonymity.
He was expected to hold talks with Morsi Tuesday morning, the source said.
Gaza’s Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniya had also been expected to set out for Cairo Sunday where he was to hold security talks with his Egyptian counterpart Hisham Qandil the next day.
But several security incidents in northern Sinai prompted Egyptian officials to call off the trip, a senior official in Gaza said. “The Egyptians postponed the visit for security reasons,” he said. – AFP
