US Backs Israel’s Middle East Railway Initiative


Jason Greenblatt, the US Special Representative for International Negotiations, on Monday expressed support for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz’s “Railroads for Peace” initiative.

“Today Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz is in Oman at an international transportation event. He will present a plan for the construction of a railway between Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. Let’s keep the dialogue going. These efforts support our efforts,” tweeted Greenblatt.

Minister Katz said of his visit, “This is a dramatic development that is likely to affect many countries in the region, and it follows many contacts on the matter, which I led with the backing of the prime minister vis-à-vis the American administration and Arab elements in the region.”
