A Hamas delegation crossed to Egypt through the Rafah border terminal on Wednesday for talks with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter in Cairo to probe the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip, the Egyptian MENA news agency reported.

Led by former Hamas Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar, the Hamas delegation was welcomed by an official Egyptian delegation upon arrival, MENA said.

The delegation was also scheduled to meet Egyptian officials, said the report.

Carter is also expected to meet exiled Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal in Damascus on Friday, despite Israeli and U.S. opposition, according to pro-Hamas daily newspaper Palestine.

Carter kicked off a week-long trip to the Middle East on Sunday to look for ways to push the Mideast peace process between the Palestinians and Israelis. He said his mission tends to be personal.

On Monday, the White House urged Carter not to meet with Hamas leaders, saying "he is not representing the United States.
