WikiLeaks: PA requested Rafah to open to Gaza-Egypt exports

The PA pressed the US to use its influence to secure the opening of the Rafah crossing for Gazan exports into Egypt, according to a Wikileaks document released Saturday.
The Palestinian team also pressed the US to ensure clearance of commercial cargo imports at Kerem Shalom from Egypt into Gaza by PA and Israeli customs inspectors and the expansion of the categories of travelers able to use Rafah passage to include journalists and third country nationals of Palestinian heritage.
