Hamas: Ready to negotiate based on Qatari plan

October 10, 2006 11:03

The spokesman for the Hamas-led government on Tuesday said the group has reservations about a Qatari proposal for forming a new Palestinian unity government. The spokesman, Ghazi Hamad, told reporters that Hamas is not prepared to renounce violence or recognize Israel as demanded by the international community. However, he said the group is ready to continue negotiations based on the Qatari plan and hopes to hold a meeting with PA President, Mahmoud Abbas, this week. Hamad spoke a day after Qatar's foreign minister, Sheik Hamad bin Jassem al Thani, arrived in Gaza to present his plan.
