UK statement on Israel settlement construction

Minister for the Middle East and North Africa James Cleverly said:

We urge the Government of Israel to reverse the decisions on 24 October and 27 October to advance the construction of settlement units in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem. Settlements are illegal under international law and present an obstacle to peace and stability.
