In a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh wrote that his group will support any step that would lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state within the '67 borders, Israel Radio quoted Palestinian media reported on Tuesday. According to the report, Haniyeh stressed that Hamas wouldn't thwart efforts to establish a free and independent Palestinian state, which will have Jerusalem as its capital. The Hamas leader reportedly went on to say the US and Israel were responsible for the current stagnation of Middle East peace talks, because they rejected a two-state solution based on ceding the entire '67 territories and allowing Palestinian refugees to return to Israel or receive compensation.
