France calls on Israel to reconsider construction plans for settlements in East Jerusalem
France called on Israeli authorities to reconsider the recently granted approval of construction plans for more than 1,500 housing units in settlements in East Jerusalem.


According to a statement by France's foreign ministry, the French government is also very concerned by information reporting additional
plans that could be approved in the coming days, claiming that these decisions represent a grave threat to the two-state solution.


On July 5, President of France Emmanuel Macron said that settlements—which are illegal under international law— have, since the beginning of the year, reached "an unprecedented level, and these decisions send a very negative signal that can only undermine the necessary trust."
