Acting Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas stresses the importance of supporting a two-state solution by any united Palestinian government.

In a Ramallah speech on Saturday, Abbas echoed a call by US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton urging Gaza's elected government, Hamas, to recognize Israel as a state.

He added that the Egyptian-mediated talks aimed at forming a Palestinian unity government that would be committed to "our values" and would "respect agreements previously signed by the Palestinian Authority,"

Army Radio reported.
"Hamas will never agree to sit in a government that recognizes Israel," Hamas official Aiman Taha reportedly said, criticizing Abbas for remarks that would undermine the success of reconciliation talks between the Fatah and Hamas. He emphasized that Hamas would never accept any kind of preconditions.

Earlier Saturday, Hamas rejected a call by the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, to recognize Israel as a state in exchange for Washington's recognition of the movement as a legitimate government.
"This is an unacceptable interference in the Palestinian affair," said Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan. "Hamas will stay on its stance not to recognize Israel or the Quartet's conditions."

He made the statement in response to Clinton's Friday remarks saying that Hamas must accept conditions of the Mideast Quartet, comprising of the United States, the European Union, the United Nations and Russia, for a unified Palestinian ruling system.
