US State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Monday that she was unaware of Israel's latest settlement plans, but stressed that, “Our policy on settlements remains unchanged and we make our views known to the Israelis at every opportunity.”

The US has long opposed settlement construction and other moves it sees as unilateral and not helping in forming an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

She added, “We have to continue to keep trying. We have to continue to work with both sides to encourage them to avoid provocation, to create an atmosphere conducive to peace.”
