Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said Thursday that he has urged Israel to curb West Bank settlement construction for three more months to give peacemaking a chance.

Mubarak said he told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu the delay could give the two sides time to draft their future borders. After those lines are agreed, Mubarak reasoned, Israel can build within its future borders and the Palestinians within theirs.

His comments were carried in excerpts from an upcoming interview broadcast on Israel Radio.
