Welfare Minister and chairman of Likud's central committee, Haim Katz, welcomed Yisrael Beytenu into the governing coalition on Monday morning after a cabinet vote approved the move.

"The addition of Yisrael Beytenu's members into the coalition reflects the will of those who voted, it strengthens the national leadership and helps the government to continue to promote measures to improve the well-being of Israel's citizens," the minister said in a statement.

He wished the incoming defense minister success in his new position, adding that he was confident Liberman would "stand firm in the face of security challenges."
