Netanyahu said today Israel will examine Trump’s Middle East peace plan in “a fair and open manner. We will hear the American proposal in a fair and open manner. I can’t understand how the Palestinians rejected the plan before even hearing what it is in it.” The comments were made during a trip to the Jordan Valley with John Bolton.
In response, Bolton said “I’ll just say that without security there is no peace, there is no long-lasting peace.” Adding, “And I just think it’s too bad, prime minister, that more Americans can’t come to locations like this, see the geography, understand its significance, understand how it affects Israel’s critical security position, and explain why Israel has taken the view that it has.
Jpost reported Bolton thanked Netanyahu for his leadership and friendship, and promised that the US sanctions on Iran will only grow, claiming that “Iran can never have nuclear weapons.”
