USA Backs Israel's Middle East Railway Initiative


JNN News, November 9, 2018

Jason Greenblatt, the USA Special Representative for International Negotiations, on Monday 5 Nov. 2018 expressed support for PM Binyamin Netanyahu and Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz’s “Railroads for Peace” initiative. Minister Katz said, "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. The invitation of the government of Oman and the visit are part of a comprehensive move to promote the initiative and strengthen the ties with the pragmatic states in the region," he added. Katz’s visit to Oman follows Netanyahu's surprise visit to the Gulf sultanate several weeks ago, in what marked the first time since 1996 that an Israeli prime minister has visited the country. Greenblatt has been heading the USA efforts to resume peace talks between Israel and the PA. The PA, however, has rejected USA attempts to restart peace talks with Israel and has been boycotting the USA ever since Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last Dec. (Arutz-7)
