French ambassador: Ban continuation of EU policy
Israel met the ambassadors of Britain and France, and Germany's deputy envoy over plans by the EU to ban its 28 members from having any dealings with Jewish settlements, an official said Friday. The Jewish state warned the envoys of a crisis between it and the European Union over the move, the high-ranking foreign ministry official told AFP.


Germany and France confirmed Thursday meetings, but the British embassy did not immediately comment. Christophe Bigot, France's ambassador in Tel Aviv, said, "I reminded them that the new guidelines were a continuation of European policy on settlements," (AFP)
