CAIRO – 1 March 2018: First Deputy Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLO) Ahmed Bahr discussed Wednesday in a meeting with an Egyptian security delegation efforts to end the Palestinian division, which causes a great suffering to the Gaza Strip’s residents.
During the meeting, Bahr briefed the Egyptian delegation on recent measures taken by Hamas to support Cairo’s good offices for achieving reconciliation among Palestinian factions.
The PLO is willing to exert more efforts and remove any obstacle to the mission of the Egyptian delegation, calling on the Palestinian authority to make concessions for the sake of reconciliation, Bahr said in a statement carried by the council’s media office.
For its part, the security delegation said Cairo pays great attention to the Palestinian cause, asserting that Palestine’s national security is part and parcel of Egypt’s national security.
Egypt is determined to overcome all hurdles and challenges to bring about the Palestinian reconciliation, the delegation added.
