Hamas reportedly has been holding secret talks with five European Union member states, a senior Hamas member was quoted as saying.

Osama Hamdan, who handles foreign relations for Hamas, said the talks have been held in “recent months,” according to The Associated Press. Hamdan did not name the countries.

The talks reportedly have centered on Israel and the stalled Mideast peace process.

Officially the EU has said it will not talk to Hamas until it recognizes Israel and renounces terrorism.
