Speaking at the Knesset on Wednesday afternoon, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stated that consistent economic growth would be necessary in order to address security issues in the coming decade. A five-percent grown rate would enable defense forces to overcome future challenges, said the prime minister, reiterating that his ultimate goal was to enable the establishment of a demilitarized Palestinian state which would recognize the state of Israel.
