Opposition leader Shelly Yacimovich welcomed the French President and thanked him for France's position on ensuring that Iran does not obtain nuclear weapons. 

"In this house there is no argument between opposition and coalition that Iran can not have nuclear weapons," Yacimovich said.

"Nuclear arms in the hands of fundamentalists is a problem for the whole world", she added.  

The Labor Party leader said effective diplomacy with all options on the table is what is required to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.  

On the peace process with the Palestinians, Yacimovich repeated that she thinks there needs to be a two state solution to ensure the future of Israel as both a Jewish and democratic state. She added the Labor Party would serve as a political safety net for Netanyahu if an agreement with the Palestinians was reached.
