WASHINGTON - Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Sunday his government would not take part in Middle East peace talks with a Palestinian government backed by Hamas.

In an interview with CNN, Netanyahu also said Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' comments earlier on Sunday denouncing the Holocaust could not be reconciled with his alliance with Hamas.

Israel this week called off peace talks with the Palestinians after Abbas announced an alliance with the militant group, viewed by the United States, the European Union and Israel as a terrorist organization.
