Arab FMs reject annexation of the West Bank and call for dialogue
7 de julio de 2020, 16:34Ramallah, Jul 7 (Prensa Latina) Arab League Foreign Ministers on Tuesday warned that the partial annexation of the West Bank, planned by Israel, will worsen the lengthy Israel-Palestine conflict and urged talk resumption between both sides.
During a virtual meeting, Foreign Ministers reiterated that the implementation of such a program, promoted by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would constitute a violation of international law and would pick apart previously proposed solutions based on the vision of two sovereign states.
We strongly reject the annexation of any part of the occupied Palestinian territories and warn this program would undermine the two-state solution, the foundations of the detente process and efforts for a just peace in the area.
Likewise, the foreign ministers asked the international community to take clear and influential positions and actions to avoid the application of said annexationist scheme, which Netanyahu threatened to execute as from July 1.
