Haniyya: “We Will Accept Any Referendum That Includes All Palestinians”
During a meeting with international reporters working in the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister of the dissolved government in Gaza, Ismail Haniyya, stated that his government will accept the results of a public referendum on a peace deal with Israel as long as this referendum includes all Palestinians in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and in exile.
Haniyya added that Hamas would accept a state in the 1967 borders, with Jerusalem as its capital, as long as the Palestinians decide on the issue through a comprehensive referendum even if this referendum contradicts the beliefs and principles of the movement.
