Haniyeh: Future PA government would work for right of return

By The Associated Press

DAMASCUS - Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Tuesday his
government, or any future national unity government, would work to preserve
the Palestinians' right of return.

Haniyeh, who is on his first tour abroad since his Hamas-led government took
office in March, spoke at a press conference after meeting with the
representatives of 10 Palestinian factions based in Damascus.

"We stressed our commitment to preserve Palestinian rights and principles,
first, foremost among them the right of return and the right of resistance
until defeating the occupation and establishing a Palestinian state with full
sovereignty with Jerusalem as its capital," Haniyeh said.

Haniyeh, who told reporters Monday that efforts to form a national unity
government had not reached a dead end, said his group was committed to forming
such a cabinet to secure the lifting of international sanctions imposed since
his government took power.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas announced last week that months
of negotiations with Hamas had not led to an agreement for a moderate
government that could win international recognition and help end the foreign
aid boycott.

The talks became deadlocked over the distribution of key portfolios and the
government's platform, with Hamas rejecting international demands that it
renounce violence and recognize Israel.

Hamas political leader Khaled Meshal said at the press conference that there
was "the Palestinians are unified in insisting on breaking the blockade
without paying any political costs."
