US envoy to Security Council: Settlement building has ‘reached a critical juncture’

jerusalem united nations

(Worthy News) – United States Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield told the Security Council Tuesday that Israel’s settlement building in the West Bank “has reached a critical juncture” while also admonishing the top UN body for its “overwhelming focus” on the Jewish state.

Thomas-Greenfield made her remarks at the monthly Security Council meeting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the first session since she returned from a visit to the region earlier this month where she met with Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian leaders.

“US disapproval of settlement expansion goes back decades. This is nothing new for us. But the practice has reached a critical juncture, and it is now undermining even the very viability of a negotiated two-state solution,” the US envoy said. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
