Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that the current impasse in coalition talks with Yisrael Beytenu was not a crisis and would be resolved.
Although Netanyahu reached a preliminary deal with Yisrael Beytenu last Wednesday, Yisrael Beytenu has been fighting the Treasury over its demand for pension reforms.
"There are negotiations, which has ups and downs. I've done countless processes of negotiations. It takes an effort and there are always crises and blow-ups. They always say everything is collapsing but nothing is collapsing. It takes time. Don't lose hope. "
