Egypt will move its embassy to Ramallah, it was agreed in a meeting Wednesday between Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Egyptian Ambassador to the PA Ashraf Akel. Egypt withdrew its embassy from Gaza a month and a half ago following Hamas's violent takeover of the Strip. The new embassy will operate from the building which has been used as the Egyptian Consulate for the last two years.
