Netanyahu in China as Political Crisis Brews Back Home
Israeli Prime Minister landed in Beijing China Sunday afternoon and addressed a gathering of business leaders in the evening. He spent Monday morning at the Great Hall of the People with his Chinese counterpart, Prime Minister Li Keqiang. The two leaders signed several agreements to enhance economic cooperation.

Here are some videos from his trip


 




Meanwhile, a number of political issues await Netanyahu when he returns home later this week.

Officials and Members of Knesset from across the political spectrum were reacting with alarm Monday to some of Netanyahu’s comments over the weekend which suggested he is ready to hold fresh elections over a disagreement he is having with Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon over the issue of the future of the Israel Broadcasting Corporation.

Transport Minister Yisrael Katz flatly declared that the issue was not important enough to justify new elections, while Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked all expressed similar sentiments.
