The Algerian president called the meeting of the two Palestinian factions a historic meeting.

Quoted from Palinfo on Wednesday, Haneyya and Abbas arrived in the Algerian capital to lead their delegation, at the invitation of President Tebboune to participate in the national event commemorating the 60th anniversary of the independence of the Republic of Algeria.

Tebboune has invited Abbas and Haniyyeh to attend Algeria which is the anniversary of its independence from France in the hope of an opportunity to start discussions between the two sides.

Mahmoud Abbas and Ismail Haniyeh met on the sidelines of the 60th anniversary of Algeria’s independence in what the Algerian president called a “historic” meeting.

The meeting between the “Palestinian brothers” came after years in which the two “did not sit at the same table together,” the presidency said in a statement, without elaborating on the outcome of the talks.
