UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed regret that "Israel will not heed the united call of the international community extend the settlement restraint policy," in a statement issued by his spokesman.

In the statement, Ki-moon reiterated his "urging Israel to fulfill its Roadmap obligation to freeze all settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem."

The spokesman continued, "In spite of this setback, the secretary-general believes it is more important than ever to promote a negotiated end-game for a two-State solution."

Ki-moon added that he "is encouraged that the United States has indicated its determination to continue its efforts in this direction and he urges the full cooperation of the parties towards that end." The secretary-general, the statement noted, "is looking forward to these matters being discussed in the days to come among all members of the Quartet."
