"As is" reference - not a United Nations document
"I am deeply disappointed by the Israeli plans to expand settlements, advancing the construction of over 2300 housing units.
Any unilateral action prejudging final status issues threatens the current peace negotiations and, as a consequence, the two-state solution.
This has been repeatedly stressed by the international community. The 28 Foreign Ministers of the Member States of the European Union unanimously warned against actions that undermine the current negotiations and deplored Israel's continuous expansion of settlements. I urge the Israeli authorities to reconsider their plans and to reverse their decision.
The current peace talks represent a unique opportunity for both Israelis and Palestinians. A final peace agreement will bring huge benefits to both peoples. Such an historic opportunity should not be squandered."
