The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, announced this Sunday a Phyto for 27,000 million dollars, which means the change of SOME 24,500 MILLION EUROS FOR CONALES To build a high-speed train that will connect the extreme north and south of the country, And that, in the long term, it will reach Saudi Arabia.

“Today we are launching the ‘One Israel’ project: connecting the entire country with a fast train,” from Kiryat Shemona, near the northern border with Lebanon, to Eilat, at the southern tip of the Red Sea bordering Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, Netanyahu said at the start of his weekly cabinet meeting, according to a statement from the Government Office.

A budget of 24,500 million

This project will be launched “with a multi-year budget of 100,000 million shekels (about 24,500 million euros). My vision is that every citizen of the country can come and go from the center of the country, from any part of the State, in less than two hours,” he added. In addition to transporting people over a distance of more than 450 kilometers, the line will allow the movement of goods from the port of Eilat to the terminals in the Mediterranean, “without traffic jams, without air pollution, without parking problems “said the prime minister.

“We will also be able to connect Israel by rail with Saudi Arabia and the Arabian Peninsula,” Netanyahu promised when announcing the project, one of his campaign promises. Through the mediation of the United States, Israel seeks to normalize its relations with Saudi Arabia, as it has already done with other Arab countries under the Abraham Accords.

However, diplomatic negotiations have been hampered, among other factors, by the colonization policies in the occupied Palestinian territories by the Israeli government, the most right-wing in the country’s history. The high-speed rail announcement comes a decade after Netanyahu, during another term, succeeded a rail line from the center of the country to Eilat, but it fell through.
