Israel, which built the new city on the Golan heights, has not abandoned plans for the annexation of the West Bank of the Jordan river. Jerusalem is trying to weaken the resistance of the Arab countries to its plan of annexation, which should start on 1 July.
Possible annexation will pay Palestinians towards extremism and could lead to regional conflict. So says the UN special coordinator for the middle East settlement Nikolay Mladenov.
Previously, a number of European and Arab countries called on Israel to abandon plans of annexation, Russian “Interfax”.
Egypt and Jordan, which have peace Treaty with Israel, warned that reconsider the relationship in the case of implementation of plans for the West Bank.
We will remind, on August 31 last year, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised to distribute “Jewish sovereignty” on all settlements located in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank of the Jordan river.
As reported by “FACTS” in 2019 was recognized as a disputed territory between Israel and Syria. The President of the United States Donald trump signed an official document stating that the US recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan heights. Control over the Golan heights, Israel set in 1967, but the international community still does not recognize the legitimacy of this step and called back the Golan heights under the control of Syria.
