Justice Minister Tzipi Livni can’t seem to get enough of PA president Mahmoud Abbas, even as he is set to preside over a unity government with Hamas, a recognized terror organization.
On Thursday, while in London, Livni met with Abbas in a private meeting, according to an Israel Channel 2 report.
Both Prime Minister Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Liberman said Livni is free to meet who she wants, but that Livni does not represent the Israeli government in her meeting with Abbas.
The Prime Minister’s office said, Netanyahu told Livni before the meeting that she, “would only be representing herself in the talks, not the government of Israel.”
The cabinet, including Livni, voted against continuing the talks with the Palestinian Authority, once the PA decided to form a unity government with Hamas.
