Netanyahu says Lapid meeting was good, more to come

Walking through a scrum of Knesset reporters on his way to a toast for the new government, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says a brief meeting between him and outgoing PM Yair Lapid was “good, comprehensive and to the point.”

The handover meeting between the two reportedly runs some 45 minutes.

Netanyahu says meetings with the opposition leader will continue on a monthly basis, “as we had done.”

As opposition leader, Netanyahu turned down meetings with Lapid for over a year until August 2022.
