Following reports that Construction and Housing Minister Ariel Attias had secretly agreed with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak to freeze all settlement construction, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said he wasn't aware of such a deal. "Any agreement on the issue must be made in the framework of a comprehensive deal," he told Army Radio. "What the High Court and government decide is what counts, and anything else is just talk."
