AP - Mon Jan 30, 12:09 PM ET

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Hamas and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas asked the international community Monday not to cut aid to the Palestinians, as world leaders met to discuss the fallout from the Islamic militant group's victory in last week's parliamentary elections. Ismail Haniyeh, a Hamas leader in Gaza, promised that foreign aid would go only toward helping ordinary Palestinians and said a Hamas government is ready to have its spending monitored. He also said the group is ready to negotiate.
