The European Union is considering instituting a ban on imports of products made in Israeli settlements, a Greek Foreign Ministry official was quoted as saying to a group of Israeli and Palestinian journalists on Friday.

According to Channel 10, the Greek diplomat,  speaking to reporters during a Geneva Initiative seminar in Athens, said that EU nations were currently holding discussions on the issue. Among moves being considered were a total import ban of settlement goods or the implementation of special labels for goods made in communities beyond the Green Line, such as South Africa adopted last month.

Channel 10 quoted the official as saying the EU Executive Commission would likely make a decision on the issue next month.
