April 23, 2011 17:04

Homeland Security Minister Matan Vilna'i on Saturday called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to work towards the creation of a Palestinian state.

"The prime minister needs to behave like [former prime minister] Menachem Begin, who acted against the opinions of many in his party, and to [work towards] establishing a Palestinian state alongside the State of Israel," Vilna'i said an event in Holon.

The minister added, "we cannot arrive at a point where a Palestinian state is declared unilaterally. Therefore, the government must find a solution through dialogue, in which we are guaranteed security and they are guaranteed a state."
