World A- A A+

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau directly expressed his disagreement against the Israeli government on Israel's annexation plan of West Bank, reports citing Middle East Monitor.

“We deplore such actions, which are going to delay any prospect of lasting peace in the Middle East,” Trudeau said.

His decision comes after the appeal of several Canadian politicians pressured official Ottawa to show resistance against the Israeli annexation of West Bank. They sent a letter to the government.

“We are writing to you as retired Canadian diplomats, proud of Canada’s historical commitment to multilateral institutions and its reputation for supporting the rule of law,” the letter begins.

In their condemnation of the Israeli plan, they stated: “In the coming weeks a significant amount of land that Canada, and the international community, recognize as occupied Palestinian territory” will be annexed.

“Territorial conquest and annexation are notorious for contributing to fateful results: war, political instability, economic ruin, systematic discrimination, and human suffering,” the letter went on to express.
