Belgium condemns settlements building in West Bank

Tehran, Belgian Foreign Ministry denounced the Zionist regime's plans to build thousands of settler units in the West Bank and Holy Quds.

In a Tuesday's tweet, the ministry called on the Zionist regime not to jeopardize political process for implementing the plans to set up two statehoods.

The message reads that Brussels urges the Zionist regime to comply with international regulations and not to spoil efforts made to revive reconciliation talks through unilateral talks.

Meanwhile, European Union on Friday condemned the Zionist regime's policies to expand settlements, describing it as against international regulations.

The Zionist regime on Tuesday announced establishment of 650 new residential units in Ramallah in West Bank.

Last week, Zionist media declared that Zionist officials are planning to set up 20,000 units in in Quds.

The United Nations and international institutes consider Israeli settlements as illegal.

The international community considers the establishment of settlements in the Israeli-occupied territories illegal under international law, because the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 prohibits countries from moving population into territories occupied in a war.
