Blue and White, Yisrael Beytenu say ‘real progress’ made on coalition principles

Negotiators from the Blue and White and Yisrael Beytenu wrap up their meeting and in a joint statement say they’ve made “real progress in formulating [coalition] principles, in particular on matters concerning issues of religion and state.”

Both parties campaigned on forming a so-called liberal unity government.

The statement says the negotiating teams will meet again later this evening, as well as tomorrow.
