Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed hopes that the coalition-building process will soon lead to formation of a new government, speaking in Jerusalem on Sunday.

"I regret that the parties are still in the treetops. I hope that a way will be found soon to bring them down to the ground of reality so that together we can form a strong and stable government for the State of Israel that will continue to lead the country to new heights," stressed Netanayhu.

He also congratulated Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte with Netherland's victory in Eurovision song contest, as well as Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison with his re-election.
