Borrell: Recognizing a Palestinian state is not a gift to Hamas

European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on Friday that recognition of a Palestinian state is not a gift to Hamas.


He added: "Recognition of the Palestinian state is not a gift to Hamas. Quite the opposite... The Palestinian Authority is not Hamas. On the contrary, they are in deep disagreement," he said.


He added that the European Union has already spoken, financed and met with the Palestinian Authority.


He said: "Every time someone makes a decision to support a Palestinian state... Israel's reaction is to turn it into anti-Semitism."
