Livni meets Abbas in Amman, urges renewed peace talks

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Amman Wednesday. Livni urged Abbas to return to negotiations with Israel before forming a unity government with Hamas, "before it is too late," according to a statement from a Kadima spokesman.
During the meeting, in which Kadima MKs Roni Bar-On, Haim Ramon and former MK Tzahi Hanegbi also participated, Livni told the PA president that only negotiations and – not unilateral steps – will bring peace. She noted that she opposes unilateral steps taken by the PA.
Addressing a unity deal recently reached between Abbas's Fatah party and rival Hamas, Livni told the PA president: "Don't let Hamas impose its agenda (on you) by forming a joint government with it."
