"The Trajtenberg Committee's recommendations were pointing in the right direction," Defense Minister Ehud Barak said in an interview with Israel Radio on Thursday, but the committee did not do all it could to solve Israel's socioeconomic issues.

"There's no way to answer the protesters' demands without expanding the budget," he explained, referring to the committee's decision to keep the current state budget.

Barak also spoke about Israel's relationship with Turkey, connecting it to Turkey and Iran's current state of tension and disagreement.

"My enemy's enemy is my friend, and we need to repair relations with Turkey."
