The French Foreign Ministry said it regrets Israel's green light for hundreds of new homes in Pisgat Ze'ev. Ministry spokeswoman Christine Fages said that the expansion of settlements in east Jerusalem "prejudges a final accord on Jerusalem and complicates American efforts for a resumed peace process." US President Barack Obama and European allies have come down hard on Israel's settlement activity, demanding a complete freeze on all construction, including in east Jerusalem. Israel has rejected the calls.
