After Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich gave an address behind a map of “Greater Israel” that includes modern-day Jordan, the Foreign Ministry releases a statement affirming that “Israel is committed to the 1994 peace agreement with Jordan.”

“There has been no change in the position of the State of Israel, which recognizes the territorial integrity of the Hashemite Kingdom,” the ministry tweets in Hebrew and in English.

Earlier, Amman blasted the map and Smotrich’s claim that the Palestinian people are a fiction as “reckless incitement and a violation of international norms and the Jordanian Peace Treaty.”
