From 2014, Israeli authorities must guarantee that all EU funding and cooperation projects are conducted within Israel's pre-1967 border and not in east Jerusalem, the West Bank or Golan Heights. A senior Israeli official is condemned the European Union's new directive banning EU dealings with settlements as "worrying" and counterproductive to peace talks. (AP Photo/Ariel Schalit, File)
