Washington. A top aide to US President Donald Trump said Thursday that an emerging Palestinian unity government must recognise Israel and disarm Hamas, following a landmark reconciliation deal signed last week, AFP reported.
"Any Palestinian government must unambiguously and explicitly commit to nonviolence, recognise the state of Israel, accept previous agreements and obligations between the parties -– including to disarm terrorists - and commit to peaceful negotiations," Jason Greenblatt, Trump's special representative for international negotiations, said in a statement.
"If Hamas is to play any role in a Palestinian government, it must accept these basic requirements."

The issue of arms and Hamas's military wing have not yet been discussed.
