Statements of spokespersons for foreign ministries of Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom on Israeli settlements (May 6, May 21)

We call on the Israeli government to promote the construction of 540 disposal units in every Homa e region of the occupied West Bank and to end its policy of settlement development in the fully occupied Palestinian territories. The settlements violate international law and jeopardize the prospects for a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

If the proposal to promote settlement construction in every Homa between East Jerusalem and Bethlehem were implemented, it would worsen the prospects for a viable Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital for both Israelis and Palestinians. The move also undermines efforts to build trust between the parties, following the constructive resumption of Israeli-Palestinian cooperation, along with intensifying settlement construction at Givat Hatos and continued evictions in East Jerusalem, including Sheikh Jarrah. .

We call on both sides to refrain from unilateral action and resume a credible and concrete dialogue to advance efforts towards a two-state solution and end the conflict.
