SECRETARY-GENERAL DEEPLY CONCERNED BY ISRAEL'S ANNOUNCEMENT

OF POSSIBLE NEW SETTLEMENT CONSTRUCTION IN EAST JERUSALEM
 

The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

The Secretary-General is deeply concerned at the recent announcement by the Israeli Government to invite new tenders for construction in Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem.  The Government of Israel’s continued construction in settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory is contrary to international law and to its commitments under the Road Map and the Annapolis process, as stressed by the Quartet when it met in London on 2 May.
