Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel reiterated his call that the time has come to apply Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.

Minister Ariel said this at a sovereignty conference held by the Women in Green movement in the Oz vGaon reserve in Gush Etzion.

Ariel expressed hope that the political plan presented by his party colleague MK Bezalel Smotrich, would be advanced to practical steps: "I want to say one thing: what Yehudit Katzover and Nadia Matar and all their friends are doing is very important and dramatic. It's time for sovereignty! This is the simple truth," he declared, "between the sea and the Jordan, there will be only one state," he said. "You must be asking about Transjordan? This, too, shall come to pass," he promised.
