Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, met with Israel's President-elect Reuven Rivlin at his official residence in Jerusalem Wednesday morning, and congratulated him on being elected to the office .
At the end of the meet, Netanyahu said, "We have known each other for several good decades. We are both from Jerusalem, the sons of professors who were educated in the philosophy of Jabotinsky and we have much more in common – such as our football team. Joint work on behalf of all Israelis is before us. We have gone through much together and I am certain that we will now know to put the less good aspects aside and work responsibly for the future of the State of Israel." (Attila Somfalvi)
