US Secretary of State vows to oppose Israeli settlements and annexation of occupied West Bank land

WASHINGTON, Sunday, December 4, 2022 (WAFA) – US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, vowed to oppose Israeli settlements and annexation of land in the occupied West Bank, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

He promised to judge Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's incoming government by actions and not personalities, said AFP. "We will gauge the government by the policies it pursues rather than individual personalities," Blinken said.

Speaking to J Street, a progressive pro-Israel US advocacy group, Blinken said that "we will also continue to unequivocally oppose any acts that undermine the prospects of a two-state solution including but not limited to settlement expansion, moves toward annexation of the West Bank, disruption to the historic status quo of holy sites, demolitions and evictions, and incitement to violence.”
