Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNN interviewer Jake Tapper on Friday that the U.S.' new Middle East peace plan would not be negatively impacted by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's campaign pledge to declare Israeli sovereignty over Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

On Monday, he met with the leaders of the parties elected to the Knesset in last week's election.

Once appointed, the new prime minister will have 28 days to form the government, although an extension of up to 14 days will be possible if necessary.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's nomination seemed virtually ensured after his right-wing Likud won the largest number of parliamentary seats in the April 9 ballot, and his closest rival, Benny Gantz of the centrist Blue and White party, conceded defeat.

Representatives of all of those parties told Rivlin at the meetings, broadcast live on the Internet, that they recommended Netanyahu get the nod. Netanyahu has denied wrongdoing. He can still argue, at a pre-trial hearing with Mandelblit whose date has not been set, against the formal filing of bribery and fraud charges against him.

"We believe that it will lead to greater conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, severely undermine, if not entirely eradicate, the successful security coordination between the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and galvanize efforts such as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement that are meant to isolate and delegitimize Israel", the letter said.
