Under the auspices of Egyptian authorities, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met in Cairo on Monday with Ramadan Shallah, Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad organization, and his deputy, Ziad Nakhleh.

The PA, meanwhile, announced that Spain has decided to recognize a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines before September.

The meeting between Abbas and the Syrian-based Islamic Jihad leaders dealt with ways of consolidating Palestinian national reconciliation, a PA official said.

The two sides also discussed the PA security crackdown on Islamic Jihad operatives and supporters in the West Bank, the official said.
