Vice Premier Silvan Shalom said Thursday that "a demonstration of Palestinian unity" blocks the way for direct talks with the Palestinians.

"It is impossible to talk with a government that is made up of those that want to destroy Israel," Shalom said.

"We will not talk to a government that won't formally recognize the State of Israel, renounce terror or recognize previous agreements, all conditions that the international community put in place," he added.
