Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country would not miss the “historic opportunity” to expand its sovereignty in parts of the West Bank of River Jordan, as Reuters reports.

"We have a historic opportunity, which has not existed since 1948, to reasonably apply sovereignty as diplomatic ... step in Judea and Samaria," Netanyahu said.

The Israeli prime minister promised to subjugate Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley in the West Bank under Israeli sovereignty and appointed July 1 as a starting point for discussion in the government on this issue. Such actions have caused concerns in the EU.

Palestinians, in turn, consider such move an illegal annexation of occupied land. Last week, they announced the cessation of security cooperation with Israel and the United States in protest of the territorial plan.

As we reported before, Israel begins trial in the case of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is accused of corruption.

The head of the government himself held the first meeting of the new coalition cabinet on Sunday morning. After a series of early elections, the Supreme Court allowed him to once again occupy the top management post, despite the criminal case.
