Minister for the Middle East, Tobias Ellwood, concerned by the announcement of new settlement units in the West Bank.

Foreign Office Minister, Tobias Ellwood, said:

I am deeply concerned by the announcement of new settlement units in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

Settlements are illegal under international law. As noted in the report issued by the Middle East Quartet on 1 July, steps like this also make a two state solution more difficult to achieve.
