UN envoy to the peace process Robert Serry met in Gaza on Sunday with four Palestinian unity ministers who were prevented from participating in the swearing in of the new interim government in Ramallah last week, Israel Radio reported.

Serry told the ministers that Gazans must feel the fruits of unity as quickly as possible, adding that keeping the peace was of the utmost importance in order to promote the opening of border crossings for people and goods.

Serry's visit to Gaza came despite Israeli appeals to the international community not to recognize the unity government, which is backed by terrorist organization Hamas.
