Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday asserted his support for upgrading to university status the Ariel University Center of Samaria in the West Bank.

Netanyahu was speaking at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. "Ariel is an integral part of Israel and will remain as such in any future agreement," he said.

"The establishment of the university serves to strengthen higher education in Israel. Seven universities is not enough. It is important to have another university, and it is important that this will be Ariel," the prime minister added.
