EU Soon to Decide on Labeling ‘Settlement’ Produce

The European Union will soon render its decision on whether to label goods produced by Jews in Judea and Samaria.

Speaking at the conclusion of a summit of European foreign ministers in Luxembourg, EU foreign policy chief Frederica Mogherini said a special committee would soon submit its conclusions on the issue.

"The work of the committee dealing with the issue is coming to a close – these are the last steps before we submit the conclusions," she said.

Luxembroug's Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said that in his opinion labeling Jewish-made goods produced across the Green Line was an important policy.

"We are not talking about an attempt to boycott Israel," he cautioned, claiming the move was instead intended to "provide information to the consumer to choose for himself if he is interested in buying produce from the settlements."
