Is­raeli PM says West Bank an­nex­a­tion ‘isn’t off the ta­ble’ yet

Fiji Sun - - WORLD NEWS -

Jerusalem: Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu said that his plan to an­nex por­tions of the Is­raeli-oc­cu­pied West Bank “isn’t off the ta­ble” yet.

“The is­sue of West Bank an­nex­a­tion re­sides with Wash­ing­ton. It is not yet off the ta­ble,” he said. Mr Ne­tanyahu set July 1 as the start­ing date for his con­tro­ver­sial plan to an­nex the Jor­dan Val­ley, an area in the oc­cu­pied West Bank. As the dead­line slipped after the White House did not give a green light, Ne­tanyahu said dis­cus­sions with U.S. teams will con­tinue.
