Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh told former US President Jimmy Carter Tuesday that his government supported any plan that aims at fulfilling the aspirations of the Palestinians, preserve their rights and lead to the establishment of a soverign Palestinian state on all the territories that were occupied by Israel in 1967. Haniyeh, according to his aides, also expressed Hamas's desire to end the case of kdnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, welcoming Carter's mediation efforts in this regard. Haniyeh was quoted as saying that Hamas supported acheiving a dignified solution to the Schalit case on a "human and political basis." Haniyeh urged Carter to exert pressure on Israel to lift the blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip and reopen the border crossings into the area.
