UN chief: West Bank annexation would violate international law

UN chief Antonio Guterres warned Wednesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to annex a key part of the occupied West Bank would violate international law.

“Such steps, if implemented, would constitute a serious violation of international law,” Guterres‘ spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.

“They would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations and regional peace, while severely undermining the viability of the two-state solution,” he said.
