Former ambassador: American denial is surprising

Former United States Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said on Tuesday that the US's denial of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's statement on the issue of coordination of Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria was surprising.

Interviewed by Israeli public radio, Shapiro said, "Even when there are disagreements, the administrations are generally coordinated. [President Donald] Trump also understands that a unilateral decision on annexation will damage his chances of achieving the ultimate deal."
