Netanyahu, who is facing ongoing protests against controversial judicial reforms, and an economic slump, said “Israel is at the focus of an unprecedented international project that will link infrastructure from Asia to Europe. This link will also realize a multi-year vision that will change the face of the Middle East and Israel and will affect the entire world.”
