UK deputy PM: Settlements are vandalism

British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said that Israeli settlements in the West Bank are "deliberate vandalism," underlining the UK government's hardening line, British The Jewish Chronicle reported Monday.
Speaking alongside Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during his visit to the UK, Clegg condemned continuous settlement building in the "strongest possible terms."
Abbas welcomed the official remarks, according to the report. He was in London ahead of negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian delegations in Amman, Jordan.
