Israel to EU team: Labeling settlement products is unfair

Israel voiced strong opposition on Monday during a high-level diplomatic dialogue with the EU over its plans to label goods produced beyond the Green Line, diplomatic officials said.

The Israeli team to the annual informal strategic dialogue with the EU was led by the Foreign Ministry’s deputy director-general for political affairs, Alon Ushpiz, and the EU team was headed by Helga Schmid, the deputy director-general of the European External Action Service.

The meeting took place a day before European Council President Donald Tusk is scheduled to arrive for a two-day visit to Israel and the Palestinian Authority. He is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.
