In response to that, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas carried out a series of "punitive measures" against Gaza in April by deducting the salaries of the Palestinian Authority employees in the enclave, forcing 7,000 into early retirement, and reducing the funding for the main services in the Strip.

Hamas announced it will keep working as long as the (Palestinian) division is still there, and that it will end its work once the unity government starts doing its duties in the Gaza Strip.

"Al Ahmad will hold discussions with Egyptian officials on the next steps", sources added.

Haniyeh's current visit to Cairo is his first since his election as Hamas leader in May.

Azzam Al-Ahmad, member of the central committee, and also in charge of the reconciliation, announced Tuesday that he would meet with senior Egyptian leaders in Cairo on resolving the Palestinian division.

The delegation, which included Hamas chief Ismail Haniya and Yahya al-Sinwar, the Hamas prime minister of Gaza, discussed enhancing Egypt-Hamas relations, in addition to easing a 10-year-old blockade of the territory imposed by Egypt and Israel.

The Hamas official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Haniyeh told the head of Egyptian intelligence Khaled Fawzy and other officials in Cairo on Monday that they would dissolve the council without preconditions to make way for a unity government with Fateh.

Gaza is and must be an integral part of any future Palestinian state.

More so, the statement said that the head of the Hamas political bureau, Haniyeh, and a number of members of the office at home and overseas, met with the Egyptian intelligence chief, stressing "Hamas' keenness on the security and stability of the Arab Republic of Egypt and not allowing the use of the Gaza Strip in any way to harm the security of Egypt".

Haniyeh's statement follows the recently resolved energy crisis in Gaza, precipitated by the PA's June decision to pay only 60 percent of the coastal territory's monthly electricity bill, amidst an ongoing feud with Hamas.

"Hamas will enable the government of national reconciliation and the dissolution of the administrative committee", Qasem said, referring to the body that controls day-to-day issues of governance for Hamas.

Hamas is ready "to hold a dialogue with Fatah in Cairo immediately, to come to an agreement and set the terms for its implementation", said Haniyeh in a statement published on the terror group's official website.
