[ 13/02/2010 - 07:47 AM ]

MOSCOW, (PIC)-- Khaled Mishaal, the head of Hamas’s political bureau, categorically denied on Friday that the leaders of his Movement have different positions, considering that the talk about internal contradictions is a losing bet.

In an interview with the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper during his visit to Russia, Mishaal stressed that Hamas has one leadership representing all its cadres at home and abroad, believing in the exchange of views and practicing real democracy.

The Hamas political leader also told the newspaper that his Movement is adherent to what was agreed upon in Egypt’s reconciliation paper without any change.

He added that this paper took into account all contentious issues, but Egypt made changes to important points especially regarding the issue of the legislative and presidential elections.

The Hamas official underlined that his Movement wants stable reconciliation, warning that if these changes were not cancelled, they would be like mines that might explode any moment.

Speaking about his visit to Moscow, Mishaal hailed the Russian openness to his Movement as courageous and wise, saying that such attitude reflects the seriousness of Moscow about playing a positive role in the region.
