BRUSSELS: Is­rael’s de­ci­sion to build new set­tle­ments far in­side the West Bank weak­ens prospects for peace with the Pales­tini­ans, the Euro­pean Union’s diplo­matic ser­vice said, echo­ing US crit­i­cism that a two-state so­lu­tion was at risk.

In a state­ment, the Euro­pean Union Ex­ter­nal Ac­tion Ser­vice said Is­rael had bro­ken with public state­ments not to build new set­tle­ments, calling the plans “ef­fec­tively a new set­tle­ment in the north­ern West Bank.”
