The United States is ready to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and Israeli settlement in Judea and Samaria in the coming weeks, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman told Israel Hayom Tuesday in a special interview held on the occasion of the two-year anniversary to the relocation of the American Mission in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Friedman explained that several processes must be completed prior to this move, saying the timetable for those dependents mainly on Israel, but made it clear that Washington does not plan to impose any new conditions for the move.

According to the ambassador, when the process of mapping the area is completed, when the government agrees to halt settlement construction in the part of Area C that will be excluded from the annexation plan, and when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agrees to negotiate with the Palestinians on the basis of the Trump administration’s Middle East peace plan – something Netanyahu has already agreed to – the US will recognize Israel’s sovereignty in areas that the plan outlined.

Friedman stressed that the key element in applying Israeli law to these areas is that Israel has to be the one to make the move.

It’s not the US that is declaring sovereignty but the Israeli government. Once it does, the US is ready to recognize it, he explained.
