Netanyahu thanks Hungary for opposing EU labeling

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanks Hungary for coming out against new European Union guidelines regulating the labeling of goods produced in Israeli settlements over the Green Line.

“Thank you for your decisive statement against the labeling of goods,” Netanyahu tells the Hungarian foreign minister, Péter Szijjártó, during a meeting at the Knesset.

Szijjártó, who is also Hungary’s trade minister, had said earlier in the day, “We do not support that decision. It is an inefficient instrument. It is irrational and does not contribute to a solution [to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict], but causes damage.”
