‘Hamas ready for peace talks with Israel’ – Israel News, Ynetnews

Palestinian businessman and billionaire Munib al-Masri, who was one of the mediators in the reconciliation talks between Hamas and Fatah, told Ynet that Hamas would be willing to negotiate a peace deal with Israel, based on the 1967 borders.

“During conversations I had with Khaled Mashal and Mousa Abu Marzook, they said that they want to establish a strong government that can achieve a comprehensive peace based on 1967 border,” said al-Masri, who has been named as a candidate to head the new government.

When asked to clarify Hamas’ intentions, al-Masri stressed the Islamic faction does not refer to a “hudna” – a long-term ceasefire that has already been discussed in the past – but rather a comprehensive agreement. However, he did not mention the issue of recognizing Israel.
