Netanyahu briefed Zionist Union leader Isaac Herzog at his Jerusalem residence Wednesday, fulfilling the legal requirement to regularly brief the head of the opposition for the first time since the March 17 election.


The prime minister's military secretary and the head of the National Security Council participated in the meeting, which lasted an hour. 


Sources in the Zionist Union stressed that political issues were not discussed at the meeting, despite Netanyahu's desire to add Herzog to his cabinet.
