UN chief denounces Netanyahu’s West Bank annexation plan


UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres expressed concern on Wednesday about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to annex parts of the occupied West Bank if re-elected, saying it would be illegal and gut prospects for regional peace.
“Such steps, if implemented, would constitute a serious violation of international law,” he said in a statement. “They would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations and regional peace, while severely undermining the viability of the two-State solution.”
