Foreign Office Minister Tobias Ellwood condemns latest Israeli government settlement announcement.

وزير شؤون الشرق الأوسط يدين الإعلان الإسرائيلي بشأن المستوطنات

29 October 2014 -- Speaking after the announcement, Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood said:

The UK condemns the Israeli government’s announcement this week to advance plans for 1060 new housing units in East Jerusalem. This is an ill-judged and ill-timed decision which makes it harder to achieve a two state solution with Jerusalem as a shared capital. Such announcements make it more difficult for Israel’s friends to defend it against accusations that it is not serious about peace.
