Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to President Trump on the phone following his announcement

The Prime Minister thanked President Trump saying he had righted a historical wrong, and that someone had to tell the simple truth, just as the President had already done by recognizing the Golan Heights and moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.

The Prime Minister told the President that we were not in a foreign land. This has been our homeland for over 3000 years. The reason we are called Jews is because we are the people of Judea. This doesn’t prevent negotiations. On the contrary – it advances peace because you cannot build true peace on a foundation of lies.

The Prime Minister also made a televised statement on the decision whilst he toured Gush Etzion and met with Judea and Samaria council heads on Tuesday.
