The Israeli leader also ruled out peace talks with the Palestinians and said he would expand West Bank settlements.

Bennett’s positions differ little from those of his predecessor, Benjamin Netanyahu. But as he prepared to meet with President Biden at the White House on Thursday, Bennett said he would seek common ground with the administration.

This government will neither annex nor form a Palestinian state, everyone gets that,” he said. “I’m prime minister of all Israelis, and what I’m doing now is finding the middle ground – how we can focus on what we agree upon.
