US says wants 'to work with all parties' on Israel-Gaza deal

The United States wants to work with all parties to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, , U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday.

But the Islamist group Hamas must renounce violence, recognize Israel and respect past peace agreements, said Clinton, refering Hamas retaliations against Israeli air strikes which kills more than 1300 during 22-day offensive in Gaza.

"We are looking to work with all of the parties to try to help them make progress toward a negotiated agreement that would end the conflict," Clinton told reporters after meeting U.S. special envoy George Mitchell.
