Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday cautioned that although the current US administration is very understanding of Israel’s needs, the country doesn’t have a “blank check” to do as it wishes concerning the Palestinians.
Speaking at his Likud faction weekly meeting, Netanyahu stressed that US President Donald Trump is set on seeing peace between Israel and the Palestinians and hinted that the American leader expects the Jewish state to be accommodating.
“I want to tell you, we don’t have a blank check on the political level,” Netanyahu reportedly told Likud lawmakers at a closed-door meeting in the Knesset in Jerusalem. “This president is determined to get a deal,” Channel 2 quoted the prime minister telling his colleagues.
