The talks are part of the Egyptian President's effort to achieve a Palestinian reconciliation as a necessary step to restarting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

"The legitimate government, the government of consensus, will return according to its responsibilities and according to the law", Fatah delegation chief Azzam Al-Ahmed said at the signing ceremony in Cairo.
