German Chancellor Olaf Scholz speaks with Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu after the victory of the right-religious bloc in last week’s elections.

A statement from Netanyahu’s office says the call lasted for about half an hour and Netanyahu told him that he plans to “expand the circle of peace between Israel and Arab states,” adding that Germany had a role to play in such an effort.

Netanyahu also reiterated Israel’s concerns about Iran’s nuclear program and thanked Scholz for Germany’s strong support for Israel.
