Israeli President Shimon Peres tasked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with forming a new government after two days of intense talks with the parties recently elected to the new parliament.

 

For his part, Netanyahu reaffirmed what he said after the election - that his top priority was to "prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear arms."

 

He also repeated that he would seek to form the "largest government possible," and called on opposition parties to join it.

 

Formal coalition talks are to begin today.
