Israel Prime Minister Rosh HaMemshala plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank, which is criticized by Germany.
Israel Prime Minister said last month that he wanted to grab the change to annex parts of the West Bank despite breaking international law. Germany being one of its closest allies warned Isreal warned that the move will damage any lingering hopes for building a Palestinian state and achieving a two-state peace agreement.
According to Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, most Israel people and the European Union are paying attention to the current development in the Middle East peace process and Israel’s annexation plans. Germany is helping to achieve a negotiated two-state solution by arranging meetings with leaders such as Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and Palestinian leaders.
The US suggested to offer one-third of the West Bank for permanent Israeli control whereas the Palestinians get the remainder of the territory. However, the Palestinians rejected the plan and have block key security ties with Israel.
