The United States is ready to implement the announced peace plan for the Middle East

The United States has said it is ready to recognize Israel's annexation of much of the West Bank and has called on the new coalition government to negotiate with the Palestinians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reiterated his commitment to re-assuming office in the West Bank following a deal to rule, which the Palestinians say will close the door to a two-state solution.

According to the French news agency AFP, the plan presented by US President Donald Trump regarding the Middle East had given the green signal to the accession of the West Bank.

A State Department spokesman said: "As we have made it clear, we are ready to recognize Israel's sovereignty and the extension of Israeli law to the West Bank."

The spokesman added that the move would be in line with the Israeli government's willingness to negotiate with the Palestinians, in line with President Donald Trump's vision.

The US president's plan allows Israel to annex Jewish settlements in the West Bank and extend its sovereignty to Jordan, which the rest of the world considers illegal.

Under the plan, the Palestinians would be given an independent but non-military state, and investment promises were made.

The capital of the Palestinian state will be on the outskirts of Jerusalem and Israel will have full control over the holy city.

According to a State Department spokesman, "this is an unprecedented opportunity for the Palestinians."

It should be noted that the Palestinians have refused to negotiate with the US government considering it biased and the European Union had also criticized the US President's plan because it is a failure of the two-state solution.

The Arab League, meanwhile, plans to hold a virtual meeting this week to discuss Israeli accession plans, which could take place in July under an Israeli coalition government agreement.
