Turkish view on Hamas taking power

Turkey: Give chance Hamas-led gov’t a chance

ANKARA/GAZA - TDN and Reuters

Hamas vowed to keep fighting Israel as the militant group's government began work on Thursday, ignoring Western isolation that has brought the Palestinian Authority to the brink of financial collapse.

Hamas's exiled leader Khaled Meshaal said the Islamist movement had not changed its stance now that it was in government in the Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank.

"We do not promise our people to turn Gaza into Hong Kong or Taiwan but we promise them a dignified and proud life behind the resistance in defense of their honor, their land and their pride," Meshaal said on Al Jazeera Television from Beirut.

Turkey's stance:

Ankara has urged the international community to adopt an unprejudiced approach towards the new Hamas-led Palestinian government and called for it to be offered the opportunity to fulfill its responsibilities. “We hope the Palestinian government will address the urgent problems on its agenda with a sense of responsibility and in a constructive manner and that violence and bloodshed in the region will come to an end,” the Foreign Ministry said in a written statement released.
