Israeli settlements: UK statement

UK government sets out position on Israeli settlements.

The position of the UK on settlements is clear. They are illegal under international law, present an obstacle to peace, and threaten the viability of a two-state solution. We urge Israel to halt its counterproductive settlement expansion.
