Ramallah, MINA – Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh reiterated his call to European Union countries to take effective and serious steps towards settlers holding the nationality of a member state and living in illegal settlements in the occupied territories as defined by international law.

This came during a meeting with non-resident representative of the Slovak Republic to Palestine at Shatyyeh’s office in Ramallah, where they both discussed the latest political developments, WAFA reported.
