How to use annexation in a sentence?

  1. Nathan Thrall:

    Even Netanyahu's main rivals believe that any Palestinian entity that is established in the West Bank should be completely encircled by Israel, having no border with Jordan, the annexation plan shouldn't be dismissed as election bluster. If reelected, Netanyahu will be under tremendous pressure to implement it.

It is de facto annexation, this is not something that I, or in my view this house, says lightly. We are the first EU state to do so. But it reflects the huge concern we have about the intent of the actions and of course, their impact.

  3. Nikki Haley:

  4. Mateusz Morawiecki:

    I look at the latest developments, including Helsinki, where it might have been that one president of our neighboring country (Putin) was pressuring the U.S. president for concessions. But I have not seen any concessions, neither as regards the annexation of Crimea nor the war in Ukraine, none of the voices that were appearing beforehand as hypothetically possible - concessions by the United States - have materialized. So I don't see where he (Trump) has made any significant concessions.

  5. Angela Merkel:

    The G7 and former G8 group has always viewed itself as a community of values, the annexation of Crimea, which is a blatant violation of the principles of international law, and the events in eastern Ukraine are serious violations of these common values.
