The Government has repeatedly condemned settlement announcements, and we will continue to call on the Israeli authorities to cease all settlement building and to remove illegal outposts, as required under international law.

On 16 June, our Ambassador in Tel Aviv, raised the issue of settlements with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and again on the 21 June with the Israeli Cabinet Secretary and National Security Advisor.
