At the weekly Cabinet meeting today (Sunday, 29 March 2015): 
1. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following remarks: 
"I have just come from a conversation with US Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. Over the weekend I spoke with US Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. I heard from both of them about strong and continuing bipartisan support for Israel and of course this is very important. I expressed to them our deep concern over the agreement being formulated with Iran in the nuclear talks. This agreement, as it appears, confirms all of our concerns and even more so.
Even as meetings proceed on this dangerous agreement, Iran’s proxies in Yemen are overrunning large sections of that country and are attempting to seize control of the strategic Bab-el-Mandeb straits which would affect the naval balance and the global oil supply. After the Beirut-Damascus-Baghdad axis, Iran is carrying out a pincers movement in the south as well in order to take over and conquer the entire Middle East. The Iran-Lausanne-Yemen axis is very dangerous for humanity and needs to be stopped."
2. Pursuant to Article 7 of the 1959 State Service Law, the Cabinet decided to authorize Israeli missions abroad to raise and receive funds for Independence Day events. 
3. The Cabinet approved the latest issue of commemorative and current coins.
4. The Cabinet discussed boosting events to mark the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. 
5. The Cabinet discussed increased funding for athletes training for the Olympic, Paralympic and other events.
