Deputy Head of the Political Bureau of the Palestinian Islamic resistance movement Hamas, Moussa Abo Marzouk, announced the details of Hamas’s meeting with Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

Abo Marzouk said on Sunday that Khaled Meshaal, head of Hamas’s Political Bureau, had met with the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Badei on Saturday.

“During the meeting Hamas stressed their respect for the national security of Egypt and their commitment to not interfering with Egypt’s internal affairs,” Abo Marzouk said, according to Hamas’s official website.

The Muslim Brotherhood released a statement about the meeting on Saturday saying that Meshaal and Badei discussed the situation in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza as well as the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons.

“Meshaal confirmed that he is in contact with Egyptian officials, especially the Presidency and the General Intelligence Service, and they are cooperating together to serve Egyptian national security,” the statement read.

Abo Marzouk denied that the meeting was related to accusations that Hamas had killed Egyptian soldiers in Rafah. “The meeting was scheduled earlier to discuss the Palestinian situation and reconciliation efforts,” he said.

Abo Marzouk also denied reports that Hamas had asked to meet Egyptian Minister of Defence Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.

“There is no need for such a meeting, as there are no topics that need to be discussed with the Minister of Defence; all these reports are inaccurate,” he said.

The Army refused to comment on the presence of the Hamas delegation in Egypt.
