Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday thanked US President Donald Trump for Washington’s decision to repudiate a State Department legal opinion that said West Bank settlements were illegal.

In a phone call, Netanyahu told Trump that the move, announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo earlier Monday, had “corrected a historic injustice.”

The premier said the change in tack represented a “simple truth” and likened it to the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and its moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem.
