Borrell also said that the US initiative “departs from these internationally agreed parameters.” The EU was especially concerned by statements “on the prospect of annexation of the Jordan Valley and other parts of the West Bank,” Borrell added.
He suggested that the EU might consider legal action by saying that any “steps towards annexation, if implemented, could not pass unchallenged,” AP reports. ■
