Qatar and Egypt are planning talks with Hamas on a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, British media reported, citing White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan.

He announced this on the sidelines of the Ukrainian Peace Conference, which is being held this weekend in Switzerland.

Sullivan said he had spoken to Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani about the matter. The two will hold another conversation today in Switzerland, where they are attending the conference on Ukraine.

Hamas welcomed the cease-fire proposal made by the United States, but insists that the agreement must guarantee an end to the war, a demand that Israel rejects. Israel described Hamas's response to the new US-proposed peace deal as a complete rejection.

Sullivan said US officials have carefully reviewed Hamas's response, adding that they believe there is still room for progress and that the next step will be for Qatari and Egyptian mediators to talk with Hamas.
