Washington ’Unlikely’ To Green-light West Bank Areas Annexation in July - Report
By Staff, Agencies
Washington is "very unlikely" to give its nod to the Zionist entity for applying its ‘sovereignty’ to occupied Jordan Valley and West Bank settlements on July 1, according to a Wednesday report by the Times of ‘Israel.’
The paper cited a source in US President Donald Trump's administration as saying there are still major hurdles to be cleared before the process could get US approval.
Under Trump’s so-called Middle East ‘peace’ plan, dubbed ‘Deal of the Century’, the Zionist entity is to apply its laws to areas designated by a joint US-‘Israeli’ panel -- but its work has reportedly been greatly slowed down as a key official has not been able to make it to the occupied territories due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Furthermore, the source told the newspaper that the Tel Aviv regime would need to host Jared Kushner, top White House advisor and a key architect of the plan, and special ‘peace’ process ambassador Avi Berkowitz, for talks on a number of related issues.
Under the coalition treaty at the foundation of the current Zionist government, a motion to annex parts of West Bank can be put to a vote as early as on July 1 - and that is the date that Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly pointed at.
However, under the same deal, the move would require the US ‘blessing’ -- something that many high-ranking officials, including US envoy to the Zionist entity David Friedman and US State Secretary Mike Pompeo, strongly hinted was highly likely.
The push for annexation has been met with concern among US allies, including some of the Gulf states and the European Union.
