      Herzog: "We Anticipate a Peace Breakthrough Soon"


      Labor chairman Yitzchak Herzog told his party that they would give Prime Minister Netanyahu all the support he needs in order to come to an agreement with the PA, "We look forward to a democratic PA state alongside Israel with secure borders, while all Israeli security needs are addressed. There is an Israeli consensus to refuse any return of PA refugees, and this should not be included in any future agreement. We anticipate a peace breakthrough in the next few weeks as the efforts of Secretary Kerry pay off, and we expect the PM and Chairman Abbas to seize the historic opportunity."
