Hamas denies accepting two-state solution

Jan. 31, 2013 9:59 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 1, 2013 2:29 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Wednesday said it does not accept the two-state solution, following reports the party had changed its position to accept the state of Israel.

The Saudi newspaper Al-Sharq reported Wednesday that Hamas politburo chief Khalid Mashaal asked Jordan's King Abdullah to inform US President Barack Obama that Hamas accepted the two-state solution.

Hamas said in a statement that the report was baseless and that Mashaal did not address the two-state solution in his meeting with the Jordanian king in Amman on Monday.

Senior Hamas official Yahya Moussa also denied the report and said recognizing the two-state solution would indicate acceptance of Israel's occupation of Palestine.

Hamas will not change its position, Moussa told Ma'an.
