Yesh Atid will stand by its demand for negotiations with the Palestinians in order to reach an agreement, and will not be satisfied by empty talk, future MK Ofer Shelah told Israel Radio on Thursday morning.

"A diplomatic settlement is essential," stressed Shelah, who is number six on the Yesh Atid party list. He added that the party would demand that the government equalize the burden by passing a law within five years that will require all 18-year-old to serve the state through military or civilian service.

Shelah also explained that Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid refused Labor's call to try to form an "obstructing bloc" with the left-wing parties, because he said there is no chance that they could form a government with this bloc.
