Israel's acting foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, today asked the EU not to deal with a "terror government," referring to Hamas's victory in the Palestinian elections.

Livni met the EU envoy to the Middle East, Marc Otte and told him, according to a statement by her office, that "after Hamas took over the Palestinian Authority, the EU has to sound a clear voice explaining there will be no European understanding for a process in which a terror government is being set up."

Livni also spoke by phone with the US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
