Netanyahu ‘Confident’ Trump’s Settlement Annexation Pledge Will Be Fulfilled Within Months
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday he is "confident" that U.S. President Donald Trump's vow to recognize annexation of parts of the West Bank and the Jordan valley will be fulfilled within several months.
“President Trump pledged to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Jewish communities there [in the West Bank] and in the Jordan Valley," Netanyahu told an evangelical crowd at a special broadcast marking the 100th anniversary of the San Remo Conference, which gave the United Kingdom a mandate over Palestine and formally recognized the Jewish people's right to a national home there.

"A couple of months from now I'm confident that that pledge will be honored, that we will be able to celebrate another historic moment in the history of Zionism,” Netanyahu said during the broadcast by christian television networks CBN and Revelation TV to mark the occasion, as the official ceremony planned in Italy for the centenary of the San Remo conference was canceled due to the coronavirus crisis.
