Palestinian reconciliation meetings are due to take place after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's return from the United Nations, Senior Hamas official Ahmad Yousef told Ma'an on Friday.

In an interview with Palestinian news agency Ma'an, Yousef said that Egypt will ask the Palestinians to resume dialogue over Palestinian reconciliation.

According to Ma'an, Yousef stressed that reconciliation would be a top priority of the Hamas movement in the coming months, after Abbas's statehood bid, set to take place at the UN on November 29. Abbas will ask the UN to upgrade the status of a Palestinian state to non-member.
