PM Netanyahu's Remarks during his Trip on the Fast Railway Line from Tel
Aviv to Be'er Sheva
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today (Tuesday, 13 November 2012),
traveled on the upgraded fast railway line
from Tel Aviv to Be'er Sheva and made the following remarks during the trip:
"Hello to you.
I chose to go the south today, to Be'er Sheva, on the upgraded railway line
in order to personally experience the fast link between the center of the
country and the south, and between the south and the center. This line makes
it possible to go down to Be'er Sheva in less than an hour; eventually it
will be within 45 minutes. This is a national socio-economic revolution of
the highest order.
I go down to the south in both happy and less happy times. Yesterday I was
in the south, today I am in the south and next week I will also be there. We
will meet with mayors from the communities adjacent to the Gaza Strip, from
Be'er Sheva and from the south in general, in order to solve their problems
and allow them to enjoy a more secure and developing future. The railway is
one expression of this development and this future."
