Abbas urge U.S to block new settlements

Top Palestinian negotiator "Saeb Erekat" said President Mahmoud Abbas voiced his plea at a late-night meeting with senior U.S officials in West Bank, urging U.S to block plans by Israel to announce new settlement construction.

Erekat said that Abbas "asked for U.S. intervention to stop the Israeli government from issuing new settlement decisions in order to save the peace process and the American efforts".

An Israeli official said the government is expected to announce new settlement construction next week. Channel 2 TV reported the plan will include hundreds of new homes in the West Bank and east Jerusalem .
