Germany and its European partners raise serious concerns over Israel’s annexation plans

Over plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank by Israel, Germany and its European partners have voiced “serious concerns”, said German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas in Jerusalem on June 10.

During his address in Jerusalem at a joint press conference alongside his Israeli counterpart Gabi Ashkenazi, Mass expressed honest and serious concerns about the possible consequences of such a step being taken by Israel and said, “Together with the European Union, we believe that annexation would not be compatible with international law.”

Calling U.S. President Mr. Donald Trump’s initiative “an important milestone” and a “significant opportunity”, Ashkenazi said, “The plan will be pursued responsibly, in full coordination with the United States” while maintaining Israel’s existing and future “peace agreements… and strategic interests”.
