France condemns settler violence in the West Bank

Paris, Nov 23 (Prensa Latina) France’s Foreign Ministry reaffirmed on Thursday its "strongest" condemnation of the violence exercised by Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank, which it framed in their purpose of expelling Palestinians from their lands.

Colonization affects the prospects for peace and the two-State solution, the institution pointed out in statements to the press.

Spokespersons for the Quai d’Orsay recalled recent comments by FM Catherine Colonna, who said that such Israeli actions “are unworthy of a democracy.”

We reiterate our call on Israel to take measures to prosecute the perpetrators of such acts and to put an end to them,” they stated.

In that regard, the French Government considered that the international community has a role to play in putting an end to these incidents, “which have a destabilizing impact and undermine the prospects for peace (…)”.

In its statements, the Foreign Ministry insisted on its position that the Palestinian National Authority “is the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinians” and that Israel must stop withholding resources allocated to that entity.

It assured that the country’s highest authorities, headed by President Emmanuel Macron, have been mobilized since October 7 to find a way out of the crisis.
