EU Members at UN Security Council: Israeli Annexation Would Violate International Law

The United Nations Security Council is holding a closed-door session on the Middle East on Wednesday.

At the start of the session, European Union representatives addressed the formation of a new Israeli government and expressed concern over its declared intent to annex parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley, saying it would be a violation of international law.

Israel's envoy to the UN, Danny Danon, said that "Any decision on the topic of sovereignty will be made solely by the Israeli government with coordination with the American administration."
