Hamas leader wants to resolve situation in the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon
Exiled Hamas supremo Khaled Meshaal called on Monday for dialogue to resolve the situation in the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. "We have called for the launch of a Lebanese-Palestinian dialogue to discuss all the problems of Palestinian camps, Ain el-Helweh or others," Meshaal said in Beirut, according to AFP.
"Addressing these problems should be conducted through dialogue and under the umbrella of sovereignty of law and the Lebanese state," he added.
Meshaal met Lebanese President Michel Sleiman, Prime Minister Fuad Siniora and parliament speaker Nabih Berri and said he would also meet Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah as well as parliamentary majority leader Saad Hariri. "We will not export our differences in Palestine to Lebanon, which has its own (differences)... especially after the return to a reasonable situation in Lebanon," Meshaal said.
