Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad Sunday called on the international community to follow suit with South Africa and boycott products of Israeli settlements.

Fayyad praised South Africa's recent decision to outlaw the labeling of settler products as "Made in Israel."

The South African Ministry of Trade last month published a notice in the Government Gazette requiring traders "not to incorrectly label products that originate from the Occupied Palestinian Territory as products of Israel."

Fayyad met in Ramallah with the head of the South Africa Representative Office and thanked him for the decision.

Fayyad expressed hope that such boycotts would be endorsed by the entire international community.
