Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with Likud MKs and deputy ministers on Sunday afternoon, to discuss the US proposal for a 90-day construction freeze.
In the meeting, Netanyahu told the Likud officials: "I have a responsibility that includes making the best decision for the State of Israel and its national interests, foremost, its security." He continued, "We still haven't received the written agreement from the Americans on the basic understandings."
The prime minister assured those attending the meeting, "If we receive a written agreement, I will bring it to the cabinet and I am sure that the ministers will approve it because it is what's best for the State of Israel." He added, "If we don't receive such a document, I won't bring the issue [of a freeze] to the cabinet."
