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.
