British Minister Calls for Removal of Illegal Israeli Settlements

TEHRAN (FNA)- British Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East Bill Rammell toured the southern West Bank city of Hebron on Monday and called for removal of illegal Israeli settlements in the city.



"I saw the facts in Hebron and witnessed the tyranny of settlers against its people," Rammell was quoted by a British Foreign Office statement as saying.

"British Minister of state for Middle East Bill Rammell called for removing settlements that according to international law are considered illegal," the statement said.

At the end of his tour in the old city of Hebron, Rammell reiterated his government's support for the two-state solution and for the withdrawal of Israel from settlements in order for peace to be achieved in the Middle East.
