The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would continue to work with US officials in the coming days regarding his plan to annex land in the West Bank currently occupied by Israeli settlements, in addition to other territories such as the Jordan Valley. Whilst speaking in Jerusalem on Tuesday, Netanyahu stated: “The tasks before us are not disappearing. Today, I managed to sit down with US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook and US Special Representative for International Negotiations Avi Berkowitz.” “With Brian Hook, I discussed the unceasing Iranian threat as well as our constant activity against the Iranian threat. With Avi Berkowitz, Ambassador Friedman and the members of their delegation, I discussed the question of sovereignty, which we are currently working on and will continue to work on in the coming days,” he added. According to reports, several talks have been ongoing between Israel and the US since Trump unveiled his set of proposals known as “Deal of the Century” to put an end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on January 28, which envision to turn 30% of the territory under permanent Israeli control, whilst giving autonomy in the remaining land to the Palestinian. The controversial process, that was supposed to start being carried out on July 1st, has been heavily criticised by the international community ever since it was unveiled, with the state of Palestine rejecting the plan altogether and ending a wide range of deals with Israel and the United States last May.
