Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas sent a letter to Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he threatened to leave all international agreements if the Jordan valley is annexed. Sky News Arabia reported that on Thursday.
"Abbas informed Netanyahu that the Palestinian government would stop living up to all agreements if Israel annexes Jordan valley and territory of the settlements", reads the message.
Previously, Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett created a special group to implement the plan of restoring the sovereignty of Israel over almost one-third of the Western Bank of Jordan River.
Previously, Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that according to the peace deal presented by US leader Donald Trump, Israel would immediately take the valley and all Jewish settlements of Judea and Samaria.
Earlier, President of the United States Donald Trump presented a peace plan in the Middle East, between Israel and Palestine. According to the outlet, it is "the result of a three-year effort by Trump senior advisers Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz and former adviser Jason Greenblatt".
During his report in the White House, the U.S. leader claimed that Jerusalem remains an integer capital city of Israel; however, he immediately said that the capital of the new state should be located in Eastern Jerusalem.
Israel will have to agree on freezing the construction of settlements on the Palestinian territories for four years.
Trump also stated that his plan to solve the conflict also foresees a solid increase of Palestine-held area.
Besides, Trump offered USD 50 billion of investments into the new Palestinian state. According to the U.S. leader, it could help create a million new jobs.
