Abbas to visit Cairo for talks with Egypt's military leader

For the first time since Hosni Mubarak stepped down as President of Egypt, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to visit Cairo on Wednesday for talks with Mohammed Hussein Tantawi, head of the Higher Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces.
Abbas’s planned visit to Cairo comes as PA officials announced that they were considering seeking “international trusteeship” over an independent Palestinian state that is declared on the pre-1967 lines.
Abbas’s talks in Cairo would focus on the status of the peace process with Israel and efforts to achieve reconciliation between his Fatah faction and Hamas, PA envoy to Egypt, Barakat al-Farra, announced.
