Statements made by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Spokesperson

Paris - July 18, 2017

Israel - Palestinian Territories – Jerusalem - Settlements (July 7, 2017).

France calls on the Israeli authorities to reconsider the recently granted approval of construction plans for more than than 1,500 housing units in settlements in East Jerusalem. It is also very concerned by information reporting additional plans that could be approved in the coming days. These decisions represent a grave threat to the two-state solution.

As the President said on July 5, settlements—illegal under international law—have, since the beginning of the year, reached "an unprecedented level, and these decisions send a very negative signal that can only undermine the necessary trust."
