The Israeli Foreign Ministry has issued a statement condemning a French decision to label Israeli products produced in the West Bank.
“The Israeli government condemns the decision of the French government to implement EU guidelines labelling Israeli goods produced beyond
the 1967 borders. We regret that France, of all countries, in which a law exists against boycotts, is taking steps which can be interpreted as a nod of support to radical elements and the BDS movement against Israel. Moreover, it is a puzzling and disturbing fact that France chooses to implement a double standard when it comes to Israel while ignoring the 200 territorial conflicts which are taking place today across the world, including those taking place right on their doorstep.”
