President Reuven Rivlin met Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at his residence Friday, after the latter's return from Russia where he met President Vladimir Putin a day before.
“This is an opportunity to wish all the Israeli people a joyous festival, a holiday during which all the people are united," Rivlin began.
"May we stand united against the challenges we face and overcome them.”
“Mr. President, together with you I send my greetings to all the ‘house of Israel,' and in particular to the Israeli servicemen and women, our soldiers, policemen and women, those serving in the border guards, who watch over us all year round," Netanyahu said.
The two then went on to discuss current political and security issues, as part of the regular meetings between the President and Prime Minister.
