Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has invited Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh to attend the Non-Aligned Movement summit set to take place in Tehran at the end of August, Haniyeh's office announced Friday according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

The invitation could spark protest from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who was invited months ago and has said his attendance was contingent on being the only Palestinian representative at the summit.
