Ulrich Wilhelm, a spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, criticized Israel's intention to build new housing units in Gilo during a press conference on Monday, saying that his government "greatly regrets the recent decision to allow the construction of new homes in east Jerusalem." "Settlement building in east Jerusalem is a major stumbling block on the road towards sustainable progress in the Middle East peace process," he was quoted by Reuters as saying.
