Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó for his support for Israel against the decision of the European Union to label products from Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights during a meeting in the prime ministers office on Monday afternoon.

"Thank you for your statement which strongly opposes the labeling," said Prime Minister Netanyahu. "It is the right and moral position and we appreciate that."

The minister characterized the European Union’s decision to affix special labels on such products as “irrational,” saying that it will not contribute to a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and it could cause more problems and damage during a breakfast meeting this morning of the Israel Council on Foreign Relations.
