Elkin on American denial of annexation talks: 'Begin also faced immense opposition'

Minister of Jerusalem Affairs Ze'ev Elkin commented on statements made by American officials disavowing talks President Donald Trump allegedly had with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding annexing the West Bank, and said, "Annexation is a supreme Israeli interest, and should be sought out even when the international community disagrees."

 

"Former Prime Minister Menachem Begin also faced immense opposition from President (Ronald) Reagan on annexing the Golan Heights, despite the fact he was friendly to Israel," Elkin added in a Ynet interview.
