Israel does not want peace and Hamas refuses a program of settlement or an "alternative homeland," Hamas leader the Hamas-affiliate Al Resalah reported Khaled Mashaal as saying Sunday in Jordan.

"Jordan is for Jordanians, and Palestine is for the Palestinians," Mashaal said during a press conference after a meeting with Jordanian King Abdullah II in Amman.

Mashaal reportedly thanked the Jordanian king for his support of Palestinians.

"Any discussions between Hamas and Jordan opens a new page between all sides in the Palestinian issue," Mashaal said.

The Hamas leader and chief of the group's political bureau in Syria was visiting Amman on his first diplomatic mission since the Islamist group was banished from Jordan and its leaders exiled in 1999.
