Hamas: We won't sign Egyptian unity plan

Dec. 29, 2009 12:57 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 30, 2009 9:34 A.M.)
Bethlehem – Ma’an – Hamas does not want to sign the Egyptian reconciliation document, but the party is ready to talk unity, Hamas politburo deputy chief Moussa Abu Marzouq told Saudi newspapers Tuesday.

Hamas leaders are ready to talk about reconciliation, but not on the terms of the Cairo document, the leader said, as high-profile Hamas leaders met in Damascus to discuss the same issues, along with Israel's latest offer in prisoner swap talks.

Abu Marzouq said the issue of reconciliation was at the top of the party's priority list, along with securing a prisoner release in exchange for a captured Israeli soldier.

Hamas will not think of signing the document unless our comments are taken into account, Abu Marzouq said, noting that if Egypt was not capable of brokering a deal than Palestinians would go elsewhere for assistance.
