NEW YORK (AP) Israel’s intelligence minister says he plans to succeed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who’s embroiled in corruption scandals and a police investigation.
However Israel Katz stated Thursday in an interview with The Related Press he hopes Netanyahu will be capable of proceed as prime minister, and “the clouds which might be hanging over his head now will move.”
Israeli police have questioned Netanyahu six occasions over a pair of corruption scandals and a former aide is now a witness towards him. Netanyahu has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and referred to as the accusations a witch hunt orchestrated by a hostile media.
On one other situation, Katz stated it is as much as President Donald Trump whether or not to maneuver the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. However he stated: “I am optimistic this can occur.”
