Vice Premier Shaul Mofaz decided Sunday to postpone a planned visit to the United Kingdom and France to personally attend to the Keshev committee crisis.

Mofaz was meant to meet with top leaders in the two countries mid-week to discuss regional development, negotiations with the Palestinians and the Iranian nuclear program.

The committee, tasked with finding an alternative to the Tal Law that would equalize the burden of IDF service, reached a stalemate over the weekend due to a dispute between Netanyahu and Kadima on whether benefits should be cut from individual haredim or only their religious establishments.
