Israel should expand ties with moderate Arab states and take advantage of the united fight against Islamic State and other radical groups, Deputy Regional Cooperation Minister Ayoub Kara told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday.

Kara (Likud), the acting minister of the Regional Cooperation Ministry, said that he is pushing to create an additional border crossing with Jordan, which would facilitate the back-and-forth of tourists traveling and that of Jordanian day workers.

In addition, he said, it would serve to strengthen relations with Amman and boost its economy, which is an Israeli and American interest.
