In major shift, Pompeo says US to label settlement products ‘Made in Israel’

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday announced new guidelines that will require goods made in Israeli controlled areas of the West Bank to be labeled as “Made in Israel,” following an unprecedented visit to a settlement winery on Thursday afternoon.

Until now, US policy has required products made in the West Bank to be labeled as such. But with Pompeo’s newly announced rules, which he said were “consistent with?our?reality-based foreign policy approach,” all producers within?areas where Israel exercises authority — most notably?Area C?under the Oslo Accords?–?will be required to?mark?goods as?’Israel,’?’Product of Israel,’ or ‘Made in Israel’?when exporting to the United States.
