Palestinian opposition to the US proposal to freeze settlement construction for three months is behind the fact that the Americans have not yet issued an official written draft of the proposal to Israel, a government official said on Tuesday.

"The benefits that Israel is supposed to receive are not acceptable to the Palestinians because they prevent them from avoiding direct talks," Army Radio quoted the official as saying.

Earlier on Tuesday, Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor told Army Radio that the security cabinet will not vote on the proposal until it is received in writing.
