The administration of US President Donald Trump is reviewing the US position on the legitimacy of Israeli settlements in Palestine and no longer considers them to be contrary to international law, said State Department head Mike Pompeo.



“President Donald Trump’s administration is redefining the Barack Obama administration’s approach to Israeli settlements. The construction of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank does not violate international law, ”he said during a press conference broadcast by the State Department.

He also stressed that the United States will contribute to the settlement of relations between Israel and Palestine in a diplomatic spirit.

In September, the Israeli government approved the construction of a settlement in the Jordan Valley as part of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s intention to extend Israeli sovereignty to parts of the West Bank.
