Defense Minister Ehud Barak met Thursday with Ban in New York and told reporters he had sought UN help in restarting the talks.

Barak said it was "an urgent necessity" that negotiations resume and said it was not the rate of settlement construction that was the problem but suspicion and mutual distrust.

Israeli officials declined comment on the international criticism.
