GAZA, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Palestinian Foreign
Minister Mahmoud Zahar of Hamas said on Thursday they need a unity government
that does not comply with U.S. or Israeli conditions.
In a news conference held in Gaza after his return
from regional tour, Zahar added that insistence to appoint pro-Israel or
pro-America figures in the coming government might complicate current talks.
"If our stance remained strict regarding the
Palestinian people's rights, the Arab and Islamic nations will adopt a favorable
reaction to them," said Zahar.
Meanwhile, Zahar said his government does not rely on
the visit of U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. "This endless series of
meetings has achieved nothing for our people; instead, these visits come to
justify more aggressions on the people."
Rice has met the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas
in West Bank earlier Thursday as part of her visit to the Middle East.
