U.S.: Israeli ‘Settlements’ Are Illegitimate


israeli-settlementAs reported yesterday, Israeli and Palestinian negotiators will resume peace talk in Yerushalayim on 14 August, the US State Department said. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said US envoys Martin Indyk and Frank Lowenstein will travel to the region to help facilitate the negotiations.

The announcement came as Israel said it had given preliminary approval for the construction of more than 800 new homes in Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Psaki said Washington had taken up the issue with the Israelis. “The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement activity and opposes any efforts to legitimize settlement outpost,” Psaki said. “The secretary has made clear that he believes both the negotiating teams are at the table in good faith and are committed to making progress,” she added.
