Palestinians Reject Israeli President’s Call to Impose Sovereignty over West Bank

The Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates expressed in a statement deep concern over remarks made by Israeli President, Reuven Rivlin, at the Israeli Institute for Democracy, which called for Imposing Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, the Israeli name for the occupied West Bank.

The Ministry strongly condemned these statements, which it stressed, breach international law.

The Ministry affirmed that Israel cannot market itself as a democratic state while it’s occupying Palestine.

It called upon the international community, particularly the Security Council, to deal with the statements of Israeli officials calling for the annexation of the Palestinian territories and take the necessary measures under international law to stop this ongoing rebellion against international peace and legitimacy.
