Hamas will not recognize any agreement signed by Abbas

Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, stated Monday that it does not believe a positive outcome would be achieved during the talks between the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, and the U.S. president Barack Obama.

Hamas spokesperson, Fawzi Barhoum, stated that Abbas’ term in office had already expired; therefore he cannot sign an agreement with any country, including understandings with the United States and Israel.

“Abbas’ term in office had ended”, the Hamas spokesperson said, “he no longer represents the Palestinian people”.

Barhoum added that the United States would only practice pressure on Abbas to make more concessions on the internationally guaranteed Palestinian rights.

He also said that any agreement signed by Abbas would not be accepted by Hamas, and that even several Fatah leaders are opposing Abbas, who is also the leader of Fatah movement.

Barhoum added that Obama did not present the Palestinians with any real initiative, and that all what Obama is presenting are some hopes accompanied by support to the illegal Israeli policies.

“Gaza is still under siege, the occupation is still annexing Palestinian lands in the West Bank and East Jerusalem”. Barhoum stated, “Israel is still acting to void any possibility of a Palestinian state, and is acting to create a racist fundamental Jewish state by voiding the Palestinian rights”.

He called for internal unity among all Palestinian factions in order to face all challenges and threats to the Palestinian cause and the legitimate struggle against the occupation.
