Israel says suspends EU peace role over settlement goods

Israel said Sunday it is suspending discussion of its conflict with the Palestinians with EU officials, in response to the bloc’s decision to label goods imported from Jewish settlements. “It is important to make clear that Israel is maintaining diplomatic talks with individual European states — such as Germany, Britain and France — but not with the institutions of the European Union,” it said. Netanyahu flies to Paris on Monday, where he will meet French President Francois Hollande, among other leaders, on the fringes of the UN climate conference.
