White House denies report it discussed West Bank annexation with Israel

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Monday denied a report that the United States had discussed with Israel an annexation plan for the West Bank.

Spokesman Josh Raffel called the report false.

“The United States and Israel have never discussed such a proposal, and the president’s focus remains squarely on his Israeli-Palestinian peace initiative,” he said.
