Dr. Ghazi Hamad, a political leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) revealed, Wednesday, that political leaders of Hamas held meetings with several European ambassadors and officials, and with senior American leaders.Hamad said that the core of the meetings focused on removing Hamas from the âterror listâ.
He told the Arabic Sky News that a serious of meetings with American and European officials have been held in a number of Arab capitals, and that the most recent meeting was held two weeks ago.
âThere is no legal or political reason to keep Hamas on the terror listâ, Hamad added, âbut these talks are not on the decision making level yetâ.
The Hamas official also held a meeting with several journalists in Gaza, and affirmed the decline in relations between the movement and Tehran due to what he called âHamasâs support to the Syrian people against Bashar Assadâ.
âThe relations have seriously declinedâ, he said, âI hope this decline wonât completely sever the ties with Tehranâ.
On the Egyptian level, Hamad said that the movement does not intervene in internal Egyptian affairs, âdespite the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is in powerâ.
âHamas never meddled into internal Egyptian affairs, in any way, shape or formâ, he said, âBut we are still facing accusations and smear campaignsâ.
He claimed that Hamas has information and documents that implicate âthose responsible for such rumors in Palestine and in Egyptâ, and added that Egyptian officials who accused Hamas of meddling in Egyptian security affairs never presented any proof.
