Peretz: If unity gov't recognizes Israel, we should reexamine talks


Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz (Hatnua) commented on the Palestinian unity government sworn in earlier Monday in Ramallah, saying "the peace process has a stratigec importance for Israel and therefore we should examine the current Palestinian government according to the orientation it takes.


"If it will announce it recognizes Israel and accepts past international agreements we must reexamine the possibility of holding talks with them, and not shunning them, which would only aid Hamas." (Moran Azulay)
