The office of Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz vehemently denied, Friday morning, a report in the "Haaretz" daily that Steinitz promised NIS 100 million to the Ariel University Center of Samaria ahead of its officially attaining university status.

The office said, in a statement, "No such amount nor anything similar was promised to Ariel University in 2013 and the subject did not even came up." The statement continued, "At the same time, the Minister of Finance supports making the Ariel Center a university and if the case is helped, a budgetary solution will have to be found."
