Religious Zionism leader Bezalel Smotrich meets with United Torah Judaism chief Yitzchak Goldknopf to coordinate ongoing coalition negotiations.

Both parties are part of Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-religious bloc that won the elections.

But coalition talks are said to be stalled over Smotrich’s demands for a top ministry.

The two leaders met for a meeting “on coordination and cooperation ahead of the establishment of a government,” a spokesman for Smotrich says.
