In a telephone conversation with the prime minister, Ban also expressed concern about Israel's plans for construction in the settlements while praising the country's "approval of new UN construction projects worth US$ 5.5 million in Gaza."

The secretary-general emphasized the importance of creating "an environment conducive for the resumption of direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians."
