EU's Ashton 'strongly opposes' new J'lem construction

Published: 12.20.12, 10:08 / Israel News

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has released a statement condemning Israel's decision to go forward with plans to build thousands of new housing units in two Jerusalem neighborhoods, Givat Hamatos and Ramat Shlomo.


"This plan for Givat Hamatos would cut the geographic continuity between Jerusalem and Bethlehem," she said. "I strongly oppose this unprecedented expansion of settlements around Jerusalem." (Ynet)
