PM: Israel won't negotiate with PA if Hamas joins gov't

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made clear Sunday night that Israel will not engage in any negotiations with the Palestinian Authority if it enters into a unity government with Hamas.
Speaking at the annual conference of the heads of Israel's delegations abroad, meeting at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, Netanyahu stated that the turmoil in the Middle East must be taken into consideration in any future agreement with the Palestinians.
"Progress in the diplomatic process is dependent on Israel preserving and guarding its security needs which is made much more difficult given the changes in the region," Netanyahu said.
