MK Ariel Pledges to Facilitate J'm-Binyamin Cooperation


Mayor Nir Barkat of Jerusalem toured the nearby Binyamin region, Thursday and discussed cooperation between the two authorities with Chairman Avi Roeh of the Binyamin Regional Council, especially in the area of easing traffic from the Binyamin region into the capital. Many Binyamin residents either work or study in Jerusalem, including a number of special education students.

Member of Knesset Uri Ariel (National Union) accompanied the tour. He said, "Together with the mayor, I will continue to work for productive cooperation in the future and, together, we will advance [the interest of] the citizens of Jerusalem and its surroundings, not just in transportation, but also in welfare, education and employment."
