Blair sees contacts with Palestinian unity govt
RAMALLAH, West Bank, Sep 10 (Reuters) British Prime Minister Tony Blair today said the international community should deal with a future Palestinian unity government if it broke with policies of the boycotted Hamas-led administration.
''I believe that such a government, based on the Quartet requirements, does offer the possiblity of re-engagement by the international community,'' Blair said, referring to demands the current Hamas-led government recognise Israel and renounce violence.
''And I would like to say that so far as I'm concerned, that if such a (unity) government is formed, then I believe that is right that the international community deal with such a government,'' he said at a news conference with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
