Yusuf Rezka, a political adviser to the Prime Minister of the Palestinian government in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh, said on Tuesday that the atmosphere was appropriate to resume peace talks between Palestinian groups in Cairo.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), Rezka stressed that Hamas asked the Egyptian government to place pressure on Al Fatah to restart peace talks with them.
On the other hand, a high level official with the Al Fatah movement in Gaza, Yahya Ribah said that he was not informed whether Egypt sent an invitation to Al Fatah to restart peace talks.
"I do carry hope that peace talks between Palestinian groups would restart. The current atmosphere is very appropriate for resumption of talks," Ribah stated.
Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadi-Nejad offered Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas during the 16th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit in Tehran last week to hold Al Fatah-Hamas talks in Tehran but the Palestinian groups rejected Iran's offer as they thought Egypt was the most appropriate country to host peace talks.
