In January 2020, U.S. President Donald Trump revealed the conditions of the "deal of the century: that was supposed to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. One of the conditions was to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Jewish settlements on the Palestinian territory, and Palestine's refusal to continue the armed combat.
Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Premier, supported the U.S. leader's offer. Palestine rejected.
In February, High Representative for External Relations of the European Union Josep Borrell opposed Israel's plans for the construction of settlements in East Jerusalem.
