RIYADH (AFP) - Foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council will meet on Sunday to discuss Mideast peace efforts after Benjamin Netanyahu was asked to form Israel's next government, GCC officials said. Officials told AFP on Saturday that the top diplomats from the six GCC members " Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar " will focus on the results of the Israeli elections and the implications of right-winger Netanyahu's leadership role for efforts to fashion a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians. The unscheduled meeting, to take place at the GCC headquarters in Riyadh, comes a week ahead of the originally-planned foreign ministers meeting. Officials said GCC finance ministers will also attend the meeting to review plans for rebuilding the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, Palestinian factions including the Fatah and Hamas movements will meet in Cairo on Wednesday in a new reconciliation bid, officials from both groups said on Saturday. "Egypt has informed Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas and the factions that it will launch a dialogue on February 25 with all Palestinian groups," Azzam al-Ahmed, the head of the Fatah parliamentary bloc, told AFP. He added that five commissions would be created to look into the main points of conflict between the two main Palestinian factions, including reforming the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) and the security forces. Hamas confirmed that it had received an "official invitation" from Egypt. "We hope the dialogue will be successful," spokesman Fawzi Barhum said. "The dialogue is in the national interest of putting an end to the internal division."
