Foreign Minster Avigdor Liberman spoke out against the decision by an EU court to remove Hamas from the bloc's terror blacklist, saying that there was no difference between Hamas, al-Qaida and Islamic State.

The foreign minister also criticized Wednesday's European Parliament symbolic decision to recognize a Palestinian state as a move that would harm efforts to restart peace talks.

"The decisions made today by the European Union do not contribute to improving the situation in the Middle East, nor do they improve the situation between the Israelis and the Palestinians," Liberman said at a press conference.
