The European Union rejected the “deal of the century” Trump

Binyamin Netanyahu approved the White House head's initiative

The EU did not accept Donald Trump's proposal and refused to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the disputed territories.

The EU has decided not to accept the U.S. proposal in the framework of the Middle East settlement initiative on the recognition of disputed territories in the West Bank by Israel. This is what the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrel, said in a statement.

“We are particularly concerned about the statements [US] about the possibility of annexation of the Jordan Valley and other territories in the West Bank. In accordance with international norms and UN Security Council resolutions, the EU does not recognize the sovereignty of Israel over the territories occupied after 1967,” Borrell said in a statement.

However, Borrel assured that Europe is looking for “a peaceful solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

According to Josep Borrel, the EU advocates “the principle of two states within the 1967 borders, with possible changes, if recognized by both parties.

Recall that on January 28, U.S. President Donald Trump announced the “deal of the century” — a plan for a peaceful Palestinian-Israeli settlement.

Thus, this plan included a clause recognizing the sovereignty of Israel over the Jewish settlements that have already appeared in the Palestinian territory, as well as the refusal of Palestine from armed confrontation.

Also in Washington, it was proposed to make “indivisible” Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and “East Jerusalem” the capital of Palestine.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu approved and supported the initiative of the head of the White House, unlike the head of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas and representatives of Hamas.

Recall that Palestine has broken off relations with Israel and the United States.

We also wrote that Arab countries were skeptical about the “deal of the century” of Trump.
