Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz told readers on Facebook, Monday, that he was meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, adding that national and personal issues would certainly come up. Referring to the current round of direct talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, Katz said, "On the one hand, a political alliance and partnership in activity and reforms over the years is important. On the other hand, I am very concerned about the way we entered the diplomatic negotiations and especially the issue of releasing terrorists."
Katz continued, "As far as I'm concerned, the line is clear. Backing the prime minister and cooperation in official matters while continuing to stand on my principles on national issues."
