The European Union’s 15 foreign ministers are slated to meet Monday to discuss whether Israel should continue receiving trade privileges for products exported from eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights or from settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, Israel’s finance minister, Ya’acov Ne’eman, said he had been reassured by E.U. officials that Europe had no plans at this time to remove the trade privileges.
