Kahlon calls upon Zionist Union to join coalition

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon on Wednesday joined Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s calls for the Zionist Union to enter Netanyahu’s government despite Monday’s addition of Yisrael Beytenu to the coalition.

Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog called on Monday for Kahlon to take his party out of the government. But in a speech in Netanya, where he was granted honorary citizenship, Kahlon rejected Herzog’s plea and tried to turn the tables on him.

"A regional peace conference can change the rules of the game, open new horizons to diplomatic progress and remove our relations with our neighbors from their current stalemate," Kahlon said.
