December 2, 2010 14:30

An aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday charged that a plan to build 625 housing units in Pisgat Ze'ev proves that Israel does not want to resume peace talks, Reuters reported.

"This Israeli signal shows that they are not willing and not ready for any deal in order to resume the negotiations," Nabil Abu Rdainah was quoted as saying. "It looks like this is an Israeli message to the Palestinians and the Americans that they are refusing any deal resuming the negotiations."His comments came a day after the District Committee of Planning and Construction in Jerusalem officially approved the establishment of a new neighborhood in northeastern Jerusalem.
