French FM condemns outpost law as ‘attack’ on 2-state solution

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault condemns a law passed by the Knesset yesterday legalizing West Bank settlement outposts and calls on Israel to “reconsider.”

“I condemn the adoption yesterday by the Israeli parliament of the law to legalize thousands of homes built on private Palestinian land in the West Bank. This law perpetuates the existence of dozens of settlements and outposts by giving them a legal basis for their future development, Ayrault says in a statement.

Calling the law a “new attack on the two-state solution,” Ayrault asks Israel to “respect its international obligations and to reconsider this law.”
