Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, the senior partner of Naftali Bennett in the coalition, issues his first response to the political crisis.

“We will do everything so that the government lasts for a long while yet,” he says. “We will do everything so that the country is not dragged to more toxic and divisive elections.”

He says the current government “represents the essential notion that our existence must be together.”
