Kerry defends US decision to work with Palestinian govt

US Secretary of State John Kerry speaks to the press at the governmental palace in Beirut on June 4, 2014Secretary of State John Kerry defended Wednesday a US decision to work with the new Palestinian unity government, despite Israeli criticism, emphasising that it does not include any Hamas ministers. The United States, like Israel and the European Union, consider Islamist group Hamas a “terrorist” organisation. Speaking to reporters in Beirut, Kerry said Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas “made clear that this new technocratic government is committed to the principles of non violence, negotiations, recognising the state of Israel, acceptance of the previous agreements and the Quartet principles.” “Based on what we know now about the composition of this technocratic government, which has no minister affiliated to Hamas and is committed to the principles that I describe, we will work with it as we need to, as appropriate.”
