Netanyahu: Annexation still on the agenda


The prime minister said the matter is currently in the Trump administration’s hands.
The coalition agreement between Blue and White set July 1 as the earliest possible date at which Netanyahu could bring extending Israeli sovereignty, in accordance with the Trump administration’s peace plan, to a vote.

US President Donald Trump’s Special Representative for International Negotiations Avi Berkowitz was in Israel ahead of July 1 to meet with Netanyahu, Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz and others. The Trump administration has not yet announced a position on the matter of sovereignty since.

A source familiar with the discussions in the US told The Jerusalem Post: “Post-Berkowitz’s trip to the region, the team has continued to work on the details but do not have an update at the moment.”
