Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein will ask the cabinet on Sunday to open to the public the photographic archives of the Govenment Press Office, which is under his ministry's jurisdiction.

Edelstein called the archives "fascinating" and said it was important to enable students, the press, and the public to use the pictures to learn about Israel's history.

He conditioned opening the archive on ensuring that privacy would be respected and that it be free for the public to view pictures.
