Norway’s Foreign Minister Huitfeldt worried about Israel’s plans to expand settlements

Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt (AP) says she is deeply concerned about Israel’s plans to expand settlements in the West Bank. The US is also concerned.

“I urge the Israeli authorities to reverse this decision and halt settlement activities in the occupied territories,” Huitfeldt said in a statement on Tuesday.

The United States also criticized the Israeli government’s plans to expand settlements in the occupied West Bank.

“We are strongly opposed to these plans, which are completely contrary to the attempts to curb tensions,” Ned Price, a spokesman for the US State Department, said.

The Israeli government announced on Sunday that it had given the green light to plans to build more than 1,300 new homes in the settlements in the West Bank.
