Gaza, Alray - The European Union refuted Israeli media reports that it put off a decision to label products coming from the Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The EU said in a statement issued on Monday "contrary to what Israel media reported, we haven't hold off enforcing the law on putting a commercial label on the Israeli settlements products; the EU hasn't been asked to delay this step."

The Haaretz newspaper quoted European diplomats as saying "the EU agreed, at the request of the United States, to postpone the move until the end of June."

Member States of the EU had confirmed on May 12th and December 10th its intention to put the "European law and agreements" in force.
