The US Secretary of State openly opposed the construction of settlements

-

In the Middle East conflict, US Secretary of State Blinken warned Israel against further settlement in the West Bank. Anything that hinders a two-state solution should be undermined.


US Secretary of State Antony Blinken openly and clearly criticizes the settlement policy in the occupied West Bank and indirectly warned Israeli-appointed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

US government committed to two-state solution

“We will continue to firmly oppose any action that undermines hopes for a two-state solution,” he said on Sunday at an event held in Washington by the liberal Jewish organization J Street.

Including “settled enlargement, efforts to annex the West Bank, disruption of the historic status quo of holy places, (houses) demolitions and forced evictions, as well as incitement to violence,” Blinken continued without naming Netanyahu directly. context.

How far to the right is Israel shifting?

Former Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently working to form a right-wing religious coalition following the recent parliamentary elections. The future government under Netanyahu will likely be more right-wing than ever before in Israeli history.

US President Joe Biden is known for criticizing Israeli settlement policy, supporting his predecessor Donald Trump’s government.

Support for Israel’s security ‘untouchable’

Blinken also stressed that the US government’s support for Israel’s security is “untouchable”. The US said it respected the “democratic decision of the Israeli people”, referring to the parliamentary elections.

The new Israeli government will be judged by its policies, not by individuals. Added:

Anything that distracts us from the two-state solution harms Israel’s long-term security and identity.

Anthony Blink

Israel has occupied Palestine’s West Bank since 1967. Nearly 475,000 Israelis live in settlements in the region, and their construction is against international law, according to the majority of the international community.
