Govt scolds Kerry for Is­rael re­marks

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Bri­tain scolded US Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry for de­scrib­ing the Is­raeli gov­ern­ment as the “most rightwing in Is­raeli his­tory”, a move that aligns Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May more closely with US pres­i­den­t­elect Don­ald Trump. A spokesman for May said the Bri­tish gov­ern­ment be­lieved that while the con­struc­tion of set­tle­ments in the oc­cu­pied Pales­tinian ter­ri­to­ries was il­le­gal, it was clear that the set­tle­ments were far from the only prob­lem in this con­flict. “We do not ... be­lieve that the way to ne­go­ti­ate peace is by fo­cus­ing on only one is­sue,” May’s spokesman said in a state­ment.
