Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in his travel to Moscow and meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called Iran as a strategic partner for Hamas.

Iran PressEurope: "The trip was made in exceptional circumstances, especially after the United States announced the so-called 'Deal of the Century'," he said in an interview on Al-Miyadin Network on Tuesday night March 3. Haniyeh also expressed hope that Syria would be in instability and security and always remain united.

In another part of the interview, the head of the Islamic Resistant Movement (Hamas) reiterated that the movement had rejected repeated calls by the US government to hold secret meetings.

Haniyeh added that the reason Hamas opposed secret talks with the US officials was that the movement knew the Americans were seeking to advance their own plans.

The US continues to pretend that it has presented the so-called 'Deal of the Century' in coordination with the Palestinians, especially the Hamas, and in this way tries to show that these groups are apparently opposed to the plan, while they are meeting with the US government in secret, Haniyeh said, adding the disgraceful American plan was a sign of US' support for the Zionist regime,

He noted that one of the topics discussed during his recent trip to Moscow with Russian authorities was the aforementioned issue.

Hamas' political bureau chief stated that the US 'Deal of the Century' targets Palestinian cause and Palestinian resistance groups must take a similar stance in rejecting and condemning it and presenting a national strategy dealing with it.

"Russia does not accept the deal of the century because it is in conflict with international law," Haniyeh said at the conclusion.

Russia and Hamas shared views in many aspects related to this issue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Hamas' leader Haniyeh touched on Palestinian national unity and the means to unite Palestinian ranks.

They also tackled bilateral relations and means to enhance them at different levels.
