Peres: No Negotiation with Hamas

President Shimon Peres said Wednesday that negotiation with Hamas was out of the question.

In a meeting with the Foreign Minister of Iceland, Peres said: "Once Hamas announced that it would not be bound by any accord Israel reaches with Abu Mazen, while at the same time developing a policy of terror and murder, Israel cannot sit down and negotiate with Hamas."

"Abu Mazen" is Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority Chairman.
