Abbas Asks South America to Follow EU Move to Label Israeli Settlement Goods

RIYADH – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged on Wednesday South American countries to take procedures similar to those taken by the European Union on Wednesday to label products coming from Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Abbas’s remarks came at the end of the summit of South American-Arab countries, or ASPA, which was held in Saudi capital Riyadh on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“The European Union believes that the occupied territories are not part of the sovereign territory of Israel and therefore everything that comes from the settlement cannot be labeled as a product made in Israel, it is as simple as that and nothing else is behind that decision,” EU officials explained.

Abbas considered that there are communities of Palestinian origin in Latin America that can play a very important role in developing relations between the Arab countries and Latin America and thus boost trade and cultural exchange between the two regional blocs.
