Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday addressed the controversy over Israel's plans  to advance 1,345 housing units in Jewish neighborhoods of east Jerusalem, saying that the issue was "overblown," in an interview with the Fox Business Network on Tuesday.

"You are talking about a handful of apartments that really don't affect the (peace) map at all contrary to impressions that might be perceived from certain news reports. So it's a minor issue that might be turned to a major issue,'' Netanyahu said in New York.
