Hamas' leader-in-exile, Khaled Meshaal, told Jordan's King Abdullah that he accepted the idea of a two-state solution between Palestine and Israel, Ha'aretz reported on Wednesday.

The Palestinian chief met with Jordan's monarch on Monday to discuss the issue of reconciliation between the Fatah-controlled West Bank and the Hamas-led Gaza strip.

According to the Israeli newspaper, citing a report in Saudi paper 'Al Sharq', Meshaal also asked Jordan's King to convey his message of a two-state solution to the U.S. President on his behalf. His support for the peace plan between Israel and Palestine marks a dramatic shift in policy as, according to the Hamas charter, Israel has no right to exist to all.

Israel has repeatedly said that it will not negotiate with a Palestinian government that includes Hamas.
