After his speech at the UN on Friday afternoon (Israel time), Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was interviewed by various networks in the United States, primarily regarding the impending peace agreement with Saudi Arabia: "The coalition is not the question. They are the ones who joined Likud. When we have a historic agreement that will change the Middle East, then they will support most things. There is government policy that the government decides on, and they are responsible enough to join in."

The Prime Minister was interviewed by several media outlets in the United States, primarily regarding the impending peace agreement with Saudi Arabia. In an interview with Fox News, Netanyahu said that the agreement with Saudi Arabia needs to happen in the coming months, otherwise, it will have to wait for several years. Regarding his coalition partners, the Prime Minister stated, "The coalition is not the question. They are the ones who joined Likud.

In an interview with CNN, the Prime Minister also addressed the internal opposition within the coalition to the agreement with Saudi Arabia: "The coalition partners joined me; I did not join them," Netanyahu said. He was also asked about the possibility of a constitutional crisis, to which he replied, "We need to respect the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court needs to continue to respect the basic laws of the Knesset. I hope we won't reach that point."

Netanyahu added, "The agreement with Saudi Arabia will be 'a step up' on the path to peace. It will change the face of the Middle East forever and bring down the walls of enmity."
