Brazil's President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva is joining his Palestinian counterpart in calling on Israel to stop building new settlements in areas claimed by Palestinians. Silva says that his country "understands that any new settlement in Palestinian territory should immediately be halted." He says the expansion of settlements should be frozen and Palestinian borders of the future guaranteed. Silva spoke Friday after a meeting with Palestine Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who also plans to visit Argentina and Chile. Silva earlier told two local radio stations that the United Nations should coordinate Middle East negotiations - not the US, which he said is "one of those responsible" for the crisis.
