PA Prime Minister: We’re Ready for Unity with Hamas, World Needs to Forget October 7

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh says the PA is still seeking unity with Hamas terror group and may hold talks with the group in Moscow on February 26.

“Russia has invited all Palestinian factions who will be meeting on the 26 of this month in Moscow. We will see if Hamas is ready to come to the ground with us,” he said at the Munich Security Conference.

“We are ready to engage. If Hamas is not then that’s a different story. We need Palestinian unity,” he said. He added that Hamas needs to meet certain prerequisites.

Asked about making common cause with a group that carried out atrocities on October 7, Shtayyeh indicated that the world needs to forget the massacre happened. “One should not continue focusing on October 7.”

He avoided questions about the PA making reforms sought by the West and indicated that PA President Mahmoud Abbas would not transfer power to a deputy. (TOI / VFI News)
