Germany's Foreign Minister: 'Settlements' Are Disruptive

Germany's foreign minister criticized on Monday the Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria and called Israeli construction in these areas “disruptive” to peace efforts, The Associated Press (AP) reported.

The comments by Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier were made just hours before he and 15 other German ministers arrived in Israel with Chancellor Angela Merkel for government to government consultations with Israeli ministers.
