UK urges Israel to 'revise' settlement construction plan

Published: 12.01.12, 13:22 / Israel News

The UK on Saturday urged Israel to reverse its decision to build 3,000 settlement housing units in east Jerusalem and the West Bank, saying the plans would undermine peace efforts.


Foreign Secretary William Hague said he was "extremely concerned" by the move, which came in response to a historic UN vote to recognize the Palestinian Authority as a nonmember observer state. "The UK strongly advises the Israeli government to reverse this decision," Hague said. (AFP)
