Kuwait Condemns Netanyahu’s Plan To Annex Jordan Valley

KUWAIT, Sept 12 (NNN-KUNA) – Kuwait condemned “in the strongest possible terms” Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu’s intentions to annex the Jordan Valley, if he wins the re-election, the Kuwait’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.

A source from the ministry, said, such an announcement is a “serious and flagrant violation” of the Palestinian peoples’ rights, international law and resolutions.

Netanyahu’s statement represents a violation of all efforts to achieve a just and comprehensive peace, the source said.

It stressed the need for the international community to take its legal responsibilities, in rejecting this declaration and consider it as “void with no legal effects on the legitimate and historical rights of the Palestinian people.”

The source affirmed Kuwait’s principled and firm stance in support of the Palestinian issue, to establish an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with international laws, the Arab Peace Initiative, and the international legitimacy.

Netanyahu said, he would annex the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank, right after Israel’s Sept 17 election, if he wins it.– NNN-KUNA
