JERUSALEM - Israel's chief peace negotiator will seek to block a proposal introduced by members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet to make it tougher to negotiate with the Palestinians over Jerusalem, one of her aides said on Sunday.

The motion won preliminary cabinet approval, but the aide said that Livni, who is also Israel's justice minister, would ask the full cabinet to freeze it to avoid any delay to US-backed negotiations renewed in July after a three-year impasse.
