Arab League says Israeli PM’s plan will undermine peace prospects

Cairo, Arab foreign ministers on Tuesday slammed the Israeli prime minister’s to annex parts of the occupied West Bank and place them under Israeli sovereignty.

A statement issued after a one-day meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo said the Israeli prime minister’s announcement to annex Palestinian territory in the Jordan Valley and the northern Dead Sea is a dangerous Israeli escalation and a blatant violation of international law and relevant UN Security Council resolutions, namely 242 and 338.

The statement said the Israeli announcement undermines any prospects to achieve peace. The Arab foreign ministers said they will immediately act to counter the Israeli plan and held the Israeli government the ramifications of these irresponsible and dangerous moves.
