william-hague_copy_340_220Friday 24th May, in an interview with Sky News, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said that Israel has lost some support in Britain and in other European countries due to its settlement construction policy.

Hague, who is currently visiting Israel, made his comments in response to an interview in which Israeli Minister Yuval Steinitz told the Daily Telegraph that perceptions of Israel were more negative in Britain than in other countries.

Hague said that Britain strongly disagrees with “settlements on occupied land” and added that “We want to see both Israelis and Palestinians really commit themselves to the peace process while there is still a chance of a two-state solution.” said Yediot Ahranot Israeli newspaper.

Hague said, Israel will struggle to maintain the two characteristics it holds dearest – that it remains both a Jewish state and a democracy.
