There are no discussions at the EU level of banning settlement products from Europe, EU envoy to Israel Andrew Standley said Wednesday.

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.
