Spain condemns Israel's construction of new settlements

The Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned Israel's announcement regarding the construction of 200 new settlements in east Jerusalem and 2000 units in different settlements in the West Bank.

In a statement issued by the MFA on Friday, Spain expressed its rejection of any unilateral move that would negatively affect peace negotiations which are "currently passing through a critical phase."

"Spain reiterates that all settlement activities are illegitimate, violate international law and constitute an obstacle to reaching a final peace agreement based on the two-state solution," the statement added.
