Friend the Member for Bournemouth East (Mr Ellwood), issued a Statement expressing deep concern about the announcement of new settlements units in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.</p><p>Whilst officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have not yet raised this issue with the Israeli authorities, Mr Ellwood said in his statement &quot;Settlements are illegal under international law. As noted in the report issued by the Middle East Quartet on 1 July, steps like this also make a two state solution more difficult to achieve.&quot;</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom value the historic relationship of trust and cooperation that we share with the Republic of Mauritius. It is therefore with great concern that we note the intention the Prime Minister of Mauritius expressed to the Parliament of Mauritius on 17 May to seek a referral by the UN General Assembly to the International Court of Justice this autumn, in order to obtain an advisory opinion in relation to the British Indian Ocean Territory (Chagos Archipelago).</p><p>Referral of this matter to the International Court of Justice would cause lasting damage to Mauritius’ bilateral relations and we have respectfully sought the Prime Minister of Mauritius’ assurance that he does not intend to proceed with such action, and that he will return to a constructive path. Mauritius stands to benefit from friendly relations, including in relation to the British Indian Ocean Territory, where the UK and Mauritius are already engaged in talks that aim to implement the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea arbitral award of March 2015 and give due regard to Mauritius’ interests in matters of marine conservation in the British Indian Ocean Territory.</p>
