Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the Jewish Agency to extend Chairman Natan Sharansky's term by another four years.

Netanyahu made the request Monday during remarks to the Board of Governors of The Jewish Agency for Israel, which is meeting in Jerusalem.

He called Sharansky a "symbol of Jewish unity and the triumph of the Jewish People over adversity."

"But you are much more than just a symbol," Netanyahu told Sharansky. "You have always worked tirelessly to secure the Jewish future.”

Sharansky's term ends in June.
