8, 2014 5:36 p.m. ET THE HAGUEJamal Aziz, once a trainer in the Iraqi army under Saddam Hussein, now calls a drafty, abandoned church in this rainy Dutch city his home. Like thousands of other Iraqis in Europe, he has lost his right to stay but is too afraid to go back despite official assurances that the country is safe. Cut off from state support and forbidden from working, he exists in a kind of continue legal limbo, living off donations and sleeping in a...

"This was a concern, as the settlements in the Palestinian territories are considered illegal under international humanitarian law," PGGM said. PGGM is among the Netherlands' largest pension fund managers, with assets in excess of 153 billion Euros ($210 billion). "Boycotts must be used to put pressure on the occupation state (Israel) so that it pays a dear price for its continuing occupation of Palestinian land and violation of international law," Palestinian MP Qais Abdul Kareem said in a statement. Palestinian officials, who despite engaging with Israel in difficult U.S.-backed peace talks to establish an independent state, have warned Israel that they may soon bring Israel before the International Criminal Court over its settlement policies. The officials welcomed PGGM's move, and the decision in the last two months of two Dutch companies to suspend dealings with Israeli counterparts to build water facilities on occupied land. The settlements are built in areas Israel captured in a 1967 war and which are now home to more than 500,000 Israelis. Palestinians want the land for part of a future state.

Trade between the two countries was 581 million in 2012, almost exclusively Cuban exports. It was not clear if Timmermans would meet with dissidents before his departure later on Tuesday. The European Union adopted what is known as the "common position" in 1996, which conditions its relations with Cuba to progress towards a pluralistic political system and respect for human rights.
