US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton called Israeli settlements "illegitimate" in an interview that aired on ABC News on Sunday.

"I think it is absolutely clear to say, number one, that it's been American policy for many years that settlements were illegitimate and it is the continuing goal and highest priority of the Obama administration to keep working toward a two-state solution with both Israelis and Palestinians," Clinton told interviewer Christiane Amanpour. The interview was taped on Friday, after the US vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning settlements.
