Washington … News Time

The United States has said it is ready to recognize Israel’s annexation of much of the West Bank, and has called on the new coalition government to negotiate with the Palestinians. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reiterated his commitment to re-assuming office in the West Bank following an agreement to govern, which the Palestinians say will close the door to a two-state solution. According to the French news agency AFP, the plan presented by US President Donald Trump regarding the Middle East had given the green signal to the accession of the West Bank.

A State Department spokesman said: “As we have made clear, we are ready to recognize Israel’s sovereignty and its application of Israeli law to the West Bank.” The spokesman added that the move would be in line with the Israeli government’s willingness to negotiate with the Palestinians, in line with President Donald Trump’s vision.

The US president’s plan allows Israel to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank and extend its sovereignty to Jordan, which the rest of the world considers illegal. Under the plan, the Palestinians will be given an independent but non-military state, with promises of investment. The capital of the Palestinian state will be on the outskirts of Jerusalem and Israel will have full control over the holy city. According to a State Department spokesman, this is an unprecedented and extremely useful opportunity for the Palestinians.

Remember that the Palestinians have refused to talk to the US government, considering it biased and the European Union has criticized the US president’s plan because it is a failure of the two-state solution. The Arab League, meanwhile, plans to hold a virtual meeting this week to discuss plans for Israeli accession, which could take place in July under an Israeli coalition government agreement. It should be noted that on January 28 this year, US President Donald Trump, while announcing a peace plan for the Middle East, said that Jerusalem would remain the “undivided capital” of Israel. The Palestinians will have a capital in East Jerusalem and the West Bank will not be divided in half.

During a press conference in Washington with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Donald Trump said that in this way the Palestinian-controlled area would be doubled. Donald Trump had said that the Middle East peace plan is 80 pages long. The US president had said that Washington would “proudly” open its embassy in the new Palestinian capital. He claimed that the project would create a new trade investment of 50 billion in Palestine and, if all went well, could create jobs for one million Palestinians.

Later, on January 31, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas sent a message to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to withdraw from security cooperation under the Oslo Accords. The Palestinians further disliked and rejected the US-announced plan, severing all ties with Washington and Israel on February 2, including security issues.
