US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Monday morning that Russian President Vladimir Putin promised to demand that Hamas recognize the State of Israel. Last week, Russia was the first of the Quartet to break with the cold shoulder given to the Hamas, when Putin invited the group's leaders to meet with him in Moscow. In a CBS interview, Rice noted that unlike the Russian stance, both the United States and the European Union see Hamas as a terrorist organization. She insisted that view would not change before Hamas does.
