canadian-foreign-affairs-minister-john-bairdIsrael’s rationale for suspending peace talks with the Palestinian leadership is “understandable,” Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said, flagging that a recent Palestinian unity pact means the militant Islamist movement Hamas would now be at the table.

“Israel feels it is tremendously problematic to have peace negotiations with a group that now may include people who believe in the destruction of the State of Israel and have supported terrorist attacks against the civilian populations,” Baird said.

“Hamas is a listed terrorist organization in Canada,” he added.
