Treasury, Israel Beiteinu reach agreement on budget

The Treasury Ministry reached an agreement with ministers of Israel Beiteinu on the budget which will be given to the party in the next two years, Army Radio reported Sunday.
After three weeks of negotiations, a number of requests by Israel Beiteinu were met: The addition of norms and standards to the police and prison service, an update in the Ministry of Absorptions "basket," and the opening of six additional Foreign Ministry offices abroad.
Tensions over the approval of the budget have been high between Israel Beiteinu and the Treasury Ministry for the last few months. Israel Beiteinu claimed that Prime Ministry Binyamin Netanyahu ignored the party's requests, and transferred funds to Labor and Shas.
