MK Isaac Herzog said Monday morning that the the natural gas dispute between Israel and Egypt is a negative development, but is being blown out of proportion.

Speaking to Israel Radio, Herzog said that "this is not a positive development, but I think we should not make more of this than it is... On a policy level, it is clear to all of us, both to Israel and to Egypt, to continue to maintain the peace treaty."
