FCO Minister condemns Israeli settlement plans
Hugh Robertson condemns plans for 2,372 settlement units in West Bank and emphasises need for just and lasting settlement.
I condemn the decisions taken by the Israeli authorities to advance a number of settlement plans in the occupied West Bank. The UK’s position on settlements is longstanding: they are illegal under international law, undermine trust and threaten the viability of the two-state solution.
Nothing must detract from international efforts to secure a lasting, just and final settlement to the conflict.
