Palestinian group Hamas, which is governing the Gaza Strip, has announced that it's ready to engage in talks with President Mahmoud Abbas’ administration to dissolve its administrative committee and hold a general election as part of a reconciliation deal brokered by Egypt.

In a statement posted on its website, Hamas has invited rival Fatah government for talks “in response to the generous efforts of Egypt… to achieve Palestinian reconciliation and end the division.”

As a step aimed at achieving national unity, the group, considered terrorist by Israel and some other states, has “invited the reconciliation government to come to the Gaza Strip to exercise its functions and carry out its duties,” the statement says.
