Hamas - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (21 June 2017)


Q - Do you think there should be a Security Council resolution that sanctions Hamas and all those who support it?

A - Hamas is included on the list of groups considered terrorist organizations by the European Union.

Our position is unwavering: Hamas must clearly meet the well-established expectations of the international community: i.e., it must recognize the State of Israel and signed agreements, and renounce violence.

France invites the Palestinians to continue their reconciliation efforts and supports the inter-Palestinian dialogue. There can be no resolution of the conflict without Palestinian unity on the principle of the two-state solution.
