UK Comment On Plans For A New Israeli Settlement

Commenting on plans for a new Israeli settlement the Foreign Secretary, David Miliband said:

"I was dismayed to learn of plans for new settlement construction in the Jordan Valley. These are clearly outside Israel's Roadmap and Annapolis commitments. At this important moment in the peace process all sides need to take steps to build confidence and ensure practical progress.

"As the Prime Minister spelt out clearly during his recent visit to the region, settlement activity in the Occupied Palestinian Territories represents a real obstacle to peace. I urge Israel not to approve these plans. We have made our views clear directly to the Israeli government."
