Egypt’s special envoy to the reconciliation arrives in Gaza


GAZA, October 3, 2017 (WAFA) – Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi’s special envoy to the Palestinian reconciliation, Khaled Fawzi, arrived in Gaza on Tuesday afternoon coming from Ramallah where he met with President Mahmoud Abbas.

Fawzi met in Gaza upon arrival with Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah to discuss progress in government takeover of duties in the Strip.

In their Ramallah meeting, President Abbas thanked Egypt for its efforts to help the Palestinians overcome their division and reach reconciliation and reunification between the West Bank and Gaza Strip after 10 years of rift.

Fawzi said he was pleased to see the launch of the reconciliation process with the arrival of the National Consensus Government in Gaza on Monday and its assumption of duties.

He said Egypt is going to invite Fatah and Hamas to Cairo in the near future to discuss the developments so far and to prepare for a wider meeting for all the factions involved in signing the May 4, 2011 Cairo reconciliation agreement in order to start implementing its terms.
