Likud MK Miri Regev indicated on Friday that Israel should not accept any US proposals for a peace agreement that provides for the Palestinians to assume control of the Jordan Valley, even if a transitional Israeli security presence is maintained for a limited time.

"Negotiations should be conducted for peace, not for land," she told Israel Radio the day after submitting a bill to annex the Jordan Valley.

Israeli law should be applied to settlements in the Jordan Valley, in order for the government to transmit the message that it will not give up on its security presence in the area, she added.

She told the radio station that the issue stood as a first order of strategic importance.
