Report: PA government recognizes '67 borders

European Parliament Development Assembly Chairperson Louisa Morantini claimed on Wednesday that in a meeting with Palestinian Parliament Chairman Aziz Dwek, the Hamas affiliate stressed that he and the PA government recognized the 1967 borders and therefore, in her opinion, Dwek recognizes Israel's right to exist. In an interview with the London-based al-Hayat newspaper, Dwek neither confirmed nor denied the statement but explained that the problems at moment were not Hamas's decisions but the Israeli occupation.
