Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has toured a Jewish settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, marking the first such visit by a top US official, APA reports citing BBC.

The trip to Psagot came a year after Mr Pompeo said the settlements did not contradict international law, reversing a long-held US position.

The declaration outraged Palestinians, who oppose settlements on land they claim for a future independent state.

Mr Pompeo will later pay a similar visit to the occupied Golan Heights.
