Israel / Palestinian Territories – Settlements

France is highly concerned by the Israeli authorities’ decision to proceed with the appropriation of an additional 234 hectares of land in the West Bank for settlement purposes. A similar measure affecting 150 hectares had already been decided on in the same part of the Jordan Valley near Jericho this past January.

The settlements represent a violation of international law and are inconsistent with the Israeli authorities’ commitments to a two-State solution. Promoting this solution is the goal that guides France’s diplomatic efforts.
