Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to the coalition crisis on Monday afternoon and made it clear that he was seeking the continued existence of the government.

"Our government is an excellent government, and it brings tremendous achievements to Israel: in the security, economic and political spheres," Netanyahu said.

"It is therefore important to continue our partnership that brings these tremendous achievements.

"I call on all the coalition partners, headed by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, to remain in the government and continue this partnership in order to ensure security, prosperity and stability for the State of Israel," Netanyahu added.

Netanyahu stressed that "we face great challenges - and we all know of them - as well as great opportunities, so it is important to continue our partnership in a broad government - only [such a government] can continue to serve the citizens of Israel."
