The government unanimously approved on Sunday a resolution to continue the construction work at the Mughrabi Gate. Except for three ministers who abstained, all others who were present at the meeting voted in favor of the resolution. The ministers who abstained were Education Minister Yuli Tamir, Vice-Premier Shimon Peres, and Minister without a portfolio Ghaleb Majadle. The resolution stated that the work will be completed as quickly as possible, and until it is finished, the Foreign Ministry will continue diplomatic efforts to neutralize criticism.
