US concerned at Israeli construction in East Jerusalem

The United States today expressed concern over Israel's decision to authorize construction of 930 houses in the Palestinian territories of East Jerusalem, occupied by the Jewish state. "America is deeply concerned by the continuing Israeli actions regarding the construction of homes in Jerusalem", the State Department said in a statement.

United States mentioned the matter to Israel and reiterated that "unilateral actions go against the efforts to return to direct negotiations and contradict the logic of reasonable and necessary agreement between the parties."
