Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal said on Wednesday that the Islamist group wanted the establishment of an independent, sovereign Palestinian state on occupied land of the West Bank and Gaza Strip with Jerusalem as its capital.

"Our aim is to establish a free and completely sovereign Palestinian state on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, whose capital is Jerusalem, without any settlers and without giving up a single inch of land and without giving up on the right of return (of Palestinian refugees)," Meshaal told a ceremony in Egypt to endorse a reconciliation deal between Hamas and Fatah movement.
