Osama Hamdan, a member of the Hamas political bureau, categorically denied that Hamas could be in a position of begging for a meeting with PA chief Mahmoud Abbas on the sidelines of the Arab summit to be held in Damascus, calling for a comprehensive unconditional national dialogue.
In a press statement to the Quds Prss, Hamadan stated that the lines of communication are between Hamas and the Arab League.
The Hamas leader strongly castigated the statements of Nimer Hammad, the advisor of the PA chief, in which he said that there was no scheduled meeting between Abbas and Khaled Mashaal, the head of the Hamas political bureau, unless Hamas backtracked on what it did in Gaza.
The Hamas leader said that Hamas does not seek a meeting for the purpose of holding mere meetings, it wants to meet on the basis of unconditional national dialogue.
