Britain confirms Israeli settlements as illegal according to international law

The United Kingdom of Britain confirmed on Thursday that its position towards the Israeli settlements is unequivocal.

In a statement, an official source of the British foreign office said that those Israeli settlements are illegal according to international law, constitute an obstacle before achieving peace in the region and threaten the possibility of reaching the two-state solution, calling, at the same time, on Israel to halt its expansionist practices which could conduce to negative results.
