Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that he "regretted" Kadima leader Shaul Mofaz's decision to quit the coalition and "give up the opportunity to make a historic change."

In a letter to Mofaz, the prime minister said, "After 64 years we were very close to  fundamental change in the sharing of the burden, but I explained to you that the only way to implement this was gradually and without causing a rift in society."

"I will continue to formulate a responsible solution, just as the citizens of Israel expect," Netanyahu stated.
