At Rabin memorial, Netanyahu accuses Lapid of lacking ‘statesmanship’

Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking at the Knesset memorial marking the 26th anniversary of the assassination of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, takes a swipe at Foreign Minister Yair Lapid.

Netanyahu says he supported the peace agreement with Jordan brokered by Rabin, when he was opposition leader. “I’m telling this to Lapid, who spoke now in support of statesmanship, but refrained from voting for the peace agreements with Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.”
