Hamas gives positive response to national-unity government deal
font size    

Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) on Wednesday gave its positive response to a national-unity government deal it has recently reached with President Mahmoud Abbas.

In a statement sent to the press in response to the new deal based on the Prisoners' Document of National Accordance (PDNA), the governing movement said it welcomed the new deal and "anything which could ease the suffering of the Palestinians".

Following a meeting in Gaza City with Prime Minister Ismail Haneya, who is also a senior Hamas leader, Abbas announced Monday that "the efforts on the political program of the national unity government have ended."

According to the deal, the incumbent Hamas-led government will be dismissed and replaced with a coalition government consisting of at least Hamas and Abbas' Fatah, the biggest Palestinian factions.

In the Wednesday statement, Hamas voiced its satisfaction for " the efforts to make the formation of the national-unity government succeed", vowing to support the agenda of the coming national coalition government that would be formed within the coming few days.

As for the PDNA, the statement said that the document "has drawn a comprehensive vision to tackle the realistic Palestinian issues on all levels".

The PDNA, initiated by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jail, calls for an independent Palestinian statehood that lives in peace alongside Israel,

But the document didn't call for "giving up the principles and the national attitude" and didn't call for recognizing Israel " openly or implicitly", Hamas stressed in the statement.
