Cuomo interviewed Alex Borodai, the leader of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic, on "New Day" Monday.

Bill Clinton: Mideast Peace is Impossible Until Hamas Renounces Violence

Former President Bill Clinton acknowledges he got "very close" to helping achieve peace in the Middle East shortly before ending his eight years in office.

Over a two-week period in 2000, Clinton played host at Camp David to then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat.

The summit ultimately ended without agreement. Two U.S. presidents later, the conflict rages on.

Now, Clinton is less optimistic Middle East negotiators will get that close again, telling CNN that peace between Israel and the Palestinians is impossible until Hamas renounces violence.

"There is no way the Israelis are going to give up the West Bank and agree to a state unless Hamas agrees to give up violence and recognizes Israel's right to exist," he said in the interview airing Monday on "New Day."
