Hamas leader in Syria said Hamas are unconditionally ready to accept any help from Turkey to unite Palestinian groups.
Khaled Mashaal, head of the Hamas' political bureau in Damascus, replied to questions of Turkiye daily newspaper "Türkiye".
Mashaal said, "we are ready to accept any proposal of Turkey that can unite groups in Palestine without laying down any preconditions." Mashaal, who had met Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu recently, said Turkey's views were important for Palestine.
Mashaal said, "Ankara wants Hamas, Fatah and Islamic Jihad to be a whole. We are saying yes to Turkey in advance in order to be together with our brothers."
"Both Turkish people and government back Palestinian cause. Turkish officials candidly try to solve the issue. I hope that the unity of Palestinian people and groups will be achieved by the hand of Turkey," he said.
He said he thought of visiting Turkey for Necmettin Erbakan's funeral, however he had changed his mind as Turkey might face problems due to that visit.
He has been away from his homeland for 36 years. He is the leader of Hamas in exile. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu had met with Mashaal at the Turkish Embassy in the Syrian capital.
