Gaza Government: Contacts with Egyptian Side Never Ceased

Gaza Government: Contacts with Egyptian Side Never Ceased

GAZA, (PIC)-- The Palestinian government in Gaza confirmed that relations with the Egyptian side have not been severed after the recent events in Egypt as some rumors suggested.

Ziad Zaza, Deputy Prime Minister, stated that contacts and discussions about common issues with the Egyptian side continue.

He said in an interview with al-Jazeera Net on Tuesday that all daily life issues and issues related to the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt are being discussed with the Egyptian side, and he strongly denied any interruption in the communication between the two sides.

Zaza noted that the government agencies in Egypt know very well that what is being published by Egyptian media against Gaza and Hamas are fabrications.

He reiterated that Gaza does not interfere in the Egyptian internal crisis, and that Hamas's battle is only with the occupation.
