President Isaac Herzog releases a statement to “emphasize” that “no binding drafts were sent by the President’s Residence to either side,” in overhaul negotiations, “and of course, no full agreement was reached on any issue,” echoing opposition leaders.
“Naturally, ideas have been raised both in internal discussions and among the general public regarding the issues on the agenda, but they have not yet been formulated into any understandings and conclusions,” he adds.
Herzog also calls on parties to return to the negotiating table amid the crisis in talks.
“I have always believed, and today more than ever, that dialogue is the best solution for the State of Israel. I reiterate my call to show national responsibility and to continue the fruitful and substantive dialogue that took place in recent months under the auspices of the President’s Residence,” he says.
