Hamas 'will not obstruct' 1967 borders deal

Cairo, 11 June-(ANA)-Hamas will not obstruct any political movement towards establishing a Palestinian state on 1967 borders, its exiled leader, Khaled Meshaal has said.

Mr Meshaal told a press conference at the end of Palestinian crisis talks in Egypt that the meeting had been important and fruitful.

On President Obama's recent speeches on the Middle East, Mr Meshaal called Obama’s tone "encouraging".

He warned that "the main obstacle is what is happening in the West Bank".

Egypt has been hosting separate meetings with representatives of Hamas and Fatah to try and stem a growing crisis between the two factions.

Raids in the city of Qalqilya last week left nine people dead and put months of mediation work by Cairo in jeopardy. (ANA)
