Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya has urged the world community to pressure the Israeli occupation authority to lift the siege on Gaza Strip and end the Palestinian people"s suffering.

 

He told a joint press conference with former American president Jimmy Carter that such a step would lead to mutual and reciprocal calm with the IOA.

 

Haneyya also said that his government was ready to accept the establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, describing it as "national dream".

 

He affirmed, however, that such a state should be fully sovereign with Jerusalem as its capital.

 

The premier said that he discussed with Carter the question of prisoners and the Israeli captured soldier Gilad Shalit during a meeting with Hamas leaders. He declared support for any effort leading to an honorable prisoners" exchange deal.

 

Yousef Rezka, the political advisor of Haneyya, said in an earlier statement that the government would listen to Carter"s evaluation of Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu"s speech.

 

He said that Carter"s visit falls in line with the positive changes in dealing with Hamas movement and the government in Gaza worldwide.

 

Rezka would not confirm or deny that Carter was carrying a message from the new American administration of Barack Obama to Hamas.

 

For his part, MP Ismail Al-Ashkar said that Carter"s visit affirmed that no one could sidestep Hamas.

 

He added in a statement on Tuesday that the American administration should re-consider its stands regarding the Palestinian people"s right of self-determination and not to persist in the policy of unlimited support for Israel, explaining that such support had led Israel to ignore the international law and to violate human rights.
