Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders has canceled a planned visit to Israel after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to meet him over Belgium’s support of labeling settlements goods, Israel’s Channel 10 News reported Tuesday evening.
Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in response to the report that Netanyahu did not cancel the meeting with Reynders, because the meeting was never set due to schedule issues.
“Israel will continue to have wide ranging relations with EU states, while reassessing the EUs institution’s role in the peace process with Palestinians, ” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
