LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May raised concerns about illegal settlements on Thursday at a meeting with her Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu in London, May's office said.

"They discussed the need to overcome obstacles to peace, with the prime minister noting our grave concerns about illegal settlements," a spokesman from May's office said in a statement.

"The prime ministers also discussed the fact settlements are not the only obstacle and that the people of Israel deserve to live free from the scourge of terrorism and anti-Semitic incitement."
