US warns: Israel has no right to unilaterally declare sovereignty over West Bank

US Ambassador to Jerusalem David Friedman warned Israel on Sunday that it was not entitled to unilaterally declare sovereignty over the West Bank without the consent of Washington.

Mr. Friedman tweeted referring to the process of mapping the joint US-Israeli team from the West Bank, insisting that any unilateral action by Israel on the region would jeopardize the US agenda.

The US ambassador to Israel earlier in his speech on a peace plan proposed by Donald Trump for mediation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority called on Israel to wait a little longer.
