Hamas Informs Egypt It Is Ready for Reconciliation with Fatah

GAZA – The Islamist movement Hamas announced on Tuesday that it is prepared for reconciliation talks with the nationalist party Fatah and the president of Palestine, a position it reported to Egyptian officials during a visit to Cairo.

Hamas, which seized control of the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2007, said in a statement that its leaders have informed the Egyptians that they are ready to hold a dialogue with Fatah, which currently governs the West Bank in order to reach a reconciliation agreement and define the mechanisms of its implementation.

According to the statement, the delegation confirmed Hamas’ willingness to immediately dissolve the administrative committee (in the Strip) and allow the unity government (in the West Bank) to exercise its functions in Gaza.

The statement said the visiting delegation in Egypt, led by Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, met with Egyptian intelligence chief Khaled Fawzy.

The statement also expresses the readiness of Hamas to hold elections, followed by a conference in which all Palestinian factions are included in order to form a government of national unity.

The delegation emphasized the movement’s interest in the security and stability of Egypt and in not allowing the Strip to be used to damage its security.
