Israeli settlement plans violate international law: UN chief
New York: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed deep concern over the recent Israeli decision to approve further construction in the occupied Palestinian territory and said "such actions are contrary to international law”.
"Such actions and all settlement activity are contrary to international law and the roadmap," said a statement issued by the spokesperson of the Secretary General.
"The Secretary-General urges Israel to respond positively to the important efforts underway to create the conditions for effective Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and reiterates his call on Israel to stop all settlement activity, including natural growth, and dismantle all outposts erected since March 2001 in the occupied Palestinian territory," the statement said.
