Question of Palestine home
5 April 2011
Statement by Richard Miron, Spokesman for the UN Special Coordinator for
the Middle East Peace Process, Robert Serry on Israeli settlement plans in
East Jerusalem and the West Bank
Jerusalem, 5 April 2011
We reiterate that Israeli settlement activity anywhere in occupied territory, including in East Jerusalem, is illegal and contrary to the Roadmap. We call on the Israeli Government to halt further planning for new settlement units, which undermines efforts to bring about resumed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and prejudices final status discussions.
