Ambassador to the US Michael Oren was summoned on Friday to a meeting with Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg, during which the American official reiterated his administration's anger at Israel's announcement of plans for east Jerusalem construction during the visit of Vice President Joe Biden.

According to Israel Radio, the conversation with the envoy was "lively," and Steinberg conveyed a message similar to that of Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, who sharply admonished Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu over the plans in a Friday phone conversation.

The radio station reported overnight Saturday that Oren told Steinberg Israel expected the affair to dissipate after Netanyahu's apology over the timing of the announcement.
