Barak makes statement on unified gov't with Kadima

Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Tuesday said that "If it is necessary at this hour to widen the government's base, then this is the time to do it."
Barak pointed out that he was directing his statement at Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and at opposition head Tzipi Livni.
Livni, who was speaking at the same event as Barak, said moments earlier that "this is the time to unify."
