Israel/ Palestinian Territories – Settlement activity (May 10, 2013)
France condemns the Israeli government’s approval of the program to build 296 new homes in the settlement of Beit El in the West Bank.
It reaffirms that settlement activity constitutes an obstacle to a just peace based on the two-state solution, that it fuels tensions on the ground and is illegal under international law.
In the context of efforts to relaunch the peace process, this decision jeopardizes the re-establishment of trust between the parties.
