JERUSALEM, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- The Palestinian Authority will work with the new Israeli government so long as certain conditions are met, the official PA spokesman said Friday.

Binyamin Netanyahu earlier was given the go-ahead by President Shimon Peres to form a new government as Israel's next prime minister.

"We will work with any government in Israel as long as it sticks to the two-state solution, previous agreements, the halting of settlement construction and international law," PA spokesman Abu Rodaina said from Bahrain, ynetnews reported.
