Israel condemns Belgium labeling products from Judea and Samaria

Israel issued a statement of condemnation today (Wednesday) following Belgium’s decision to label products from Judea and Samaria.
“The decision to label the products harms both Israelis and Palestinians, and is inconsistent with the Israeli government’s policy focused &#111n improving the lives of Palestinians and strengthening the PA, and with and improving Israel’s relations with other European countries.”
Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll, who took off for a state visit to Belgium and Luxembourg, canceled his planned meetings with the Belgian Foreign Ministry and Parliament following the decision. “The Belgian government’s decision strengthens the extremists,” Roll said, “does not help promote peace in the region and makes Belgium a factor that does not contribute to stability in the Middle East.”
