Much speculation has occurred over proposed American plans to resume the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel Hayom reports that Prime Minister Netanyahu addressed such speculation yesterday, stating that Israel's position will be determined based on her security interests:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday he has made clear to the U.S. that Israel's security concerns must come first as the White House tries to restart the peace process with the Palestinians.
His comments came after Israeli news reports claimed to detail the developing peace plan.
At the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said that "we heard plenty of speculation this weekend" about President Donald Trump's peace efforts.
He then declined to comment further, saying only, "My position on this plan will be determined according to Israel's security and national interests..."
