Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Tuesday protested to the Egyptians over a visit to Cairo by Ismail Haniyeh, prime minister of the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip.

On Monday, Haniyeh met in Cairo with Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil.

This was Haniyeh’s second visit to Cairo since the election of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy.

Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal also arrived in Cairo earlier this week for talks with Egyptian government officials on ways of boosting relations between the two sides, representatives of the Islamist movement said.
