EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Friday said that she disapproved of the Interior Ministry's decision to approve 930 new apartments in east Jerusalem. Ashton said the new settlements damaged the prospects for peace, according to AFP.

"I am profoundly disappointed by Thursday's approval of a project that has triggered fierce criticism from the Palestinians and the international community," Ashton said.
