In a veiled attempt to woo Kadima into the government, Defense Minister and Labor leader Ehud Barak said Monday that significant progress in the peace process as a result of proximity talks between Israel and the Palestinians could well require a broadening of the coalition.

Speaking at a Labor faction meeting, Barak, who was in the US last week for meetings with top officials, said he was certain that security cooperation between Jerusalem and Washington was "deep, strong and stable," despite recent disagreements between the two sides.
