U.S Wants Four Months Settlement Freeze In Exchange For Direct Talks
The United States is asking Israel to announce a four-month freeze of settlements activities in East Jerusalem in exchange for pressuring the Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas to hold direct talks with Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
The U.S demanded Israel to halt all of its settlement activities in East Jerusalem, including all announced constructions in Neveh Yaakov , the French Hill and Ramat Shlomo. The recent announcement of construction on Ramat Shlomo caused tension in U.S-Israeli relations, Israeli daily, Haaretz reported.
