Egypt condemns Israel's ratification of a bill legalizing settlements


The Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Counselor Ahmed Abu Zeid condemned, on November 15th, the Ministerial Committee for legislation in the Israeli government's ratification of a bill that would allow legalizing the status of Israeli settlements in West Bank.  

The Foreign Ministry Spokesperson expressed Egypt's deep concern that the bill would be a prelude to legalize the settlements, affirming that pursuing the Israeli settlement activities, with a steady and systematic prompt pace, while taking steps to legalize them, reduces the chances of the success of the two-state solution, and undermines efforts to  resume the peace process.
