It has long been our position that Israeli settlement activity is illegal and undermines the viability of two states for two peoples, but it is far from the only obstacle to peace. UN Security Council Resolution 2334 addresses settlements while also calling for an end to incitement and terrorism. Both during negotiations for exiting the EU, and following our departure, we will continue to strongly support the implementation of Resolution 2334. The Secretary-General reports to the Council every three months on the implementation of its provisions.
