Egypt condemns Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands
Cairo, Jan 12 (Prensa Latina) Egypt condemned Israel's decision to expand its colonies across the West Bank, warning that it could undermine the chances to implement the two-state solution to solve the Israel-Palestine conflict, it was repoted on Tuesday.
It is another violation of international agreements, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry stated, and expressed deep concern about the aftermaths of such a program, which provides the construction of 800 facilities in that town, at a time when several nations are joining forces to funnel agreements between both parties.
In addition, such an expansionary policy will have negative effects on regional security and stability, according to the Ahram newspaper.
On Monday, the Zionist Government passed a plan to expand its colonies across the Israel-occupied West Bank, where over 700,000 settlers are already living.
In Resolution 2334 of 2016, the United Nations declared such settlements with no legal basis and called for the cessation of Israel's activities there.
The ministers of Foreign Affairs from Egypt, Jordan, Germany and France on Monday agreeed on the vision of the two contiguous and independent States (Israel-Palestine) as the only possible agreement to deal with the long-winded clash, a solution also backed by the UN.
At a press conference, the foreign ministers, who were seeking some mechanisms to resume talks between Palestine and Israel, urged both nations to refrain from taking steps that would jeopardize future talks and the sought-after horizon of peace.
The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) demanded the establishment of a sovereign homeland, with the borders prior to the 1967 war and its capital in East Jerusalem, an aspiration supported by the UN.
