The French Foreign Ministry on Monday expressed concern over the announcement that Defense Minister Ehud Barak plans to approve urban zoning in a number of West Bank settlements, a move that will allow higher density of building in those areas.

"We are warning against the construction of new housing units which could come from these decisions and which we could only condemn," French Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said.

"We recall that settlements are contrary to international law and constitute an obstacle to peace," he added.
