Former prime minister Ehud Olmert criticized US demands to freeze settlement construction in the West Bank. In an Op-Ed titled 'How to Achieve Lasting Peace' published in the Washington Post on Friday, Olmert said that the issue of settlement construction receives primary attention on the American agenda instead of focusing on the advancement of negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel.
