Russia warns Netanyahu against annexing Jordan valley


Following Netanyahu’s promise that if he’s elected to another term he will annex the Jordan Valley – and possibly other areas as well after the Trump administration presents its peace proposal, Russia warned the move could escalate tensions as the Israeli prime minister geared up to hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said it was concerned over Netanyahu’s plan, saying its implementation could lead to a “sharp escalation of tensions in the region (and) undermine hopes for the establishment of long-awaited peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors.”
