Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas once again reiterated that he will not resume peace talks until Israel renews its settlement moratorium.

In an interview broadcast Sunday evening on Channel 1 Abbas said, "When Obama became president he was the one who declared that the 'settlement construction must be stopped.' The United States says it, Europe is says it, the whole world is saying it – why should I not say it?"

Abbas said that there is worldwide consensus regarding the construction freeze.
