EU strongly opposes to new Israeli settlement plans

The new Israeli plans for over two thousand settlement units in the West Bank including East Jerusalem would further jeopardise the prospect of a contiguous and viable future Palestinian state, the EEAS spokesperson said in a statement on the latest settlements’ announcements by the Israeli authorities.

The EU is strongly opposed to Israel's settlement policy which is illegal under international law and an obstacle to peace, the statement said.

The European Union will continue to engage with both parties and with its international and regional partners to support a resumption of a meaningful process towards a negotiated two-state solution, the only realistic and viable way to fulfil the legitimate aspirations of both parties.
