We regularly make clear that Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territories are wrong, illegal under international law and deeply counter-productive to efforts to bring a lasting peace to the middle east conflict.

The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs I and our ambassador in Tel Aviv have all raised the issue of settlements with the Israeli authorities. The Foreign Secretary most recently condemned settlement activity publicly in his statements of 2, 9 and 28 November.
