Egypt has invited all Palestinian factions to meet in Cairo to revive reconciliation talks that fell apart last month. The foreign ministry spokesman, Hossam Zaki, said Wednesday that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas brought up the idea of reviving the talks during a meeting Tuesday with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Egypt has been mediating between rivals Hamas, which controls Gaza, and Abbas' Fatah, which dominates the West Bank. Zaki said Palestinian leaders have not yet responded to Egypt's invitation. A date for the talks will be set if and when the invitation is accepted.
