EU says it's not banning 'settlement products'

The European Union's ambassador to Israel, Andrew Standley, told a press briefing on Wednesday that there are no discussions in Europe of banning 'settlement products.'
Standley's comments came in response to a Jerusalem Post question at a press briefing, asking whether he felt that Irish Foreign Minister Eamon Gilmore's proposal that the RU consider banning products from the settlements was gaining any traction.

Standley said he did not know the details of the proposal, and clarified that settlement products do not receive preferential tariffs inside the EU, as do products from inside the Green Line.

The debate over settlement products comes after moves by Denmark and South Africa to label products from the settlements.
Let's see how long this lasts.
