Israel would be a willing partner to a long-term solution to solve the conflict between Israel and Gazan groups, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday evening in a joint press conference with UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon in Jerusalem.
"If a long-term solution can be put in place through diplomatic means then Israel would be a willing partner to such a solution," Netanyahu said, following talks with Ban.
However, he stressed that Israel "will not hesitate to do what is necessary to defend our people."
