" If Israel wants to reach an agreement with Hamas movement, it has to sit with it on the same table," Israel Hayom paper quoted Golan as said.
He added that it's better to talk with Hamas than fighting them.
Golan expressed his rejection to the part of the Deal of Century that talked about annexing settlements in the West Bank.
