Egyptian FM: Settlement freeze complicates peace talks

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmad Aboul Gheit criticized the Palestinian Authority on Friday for its "insistence" on a moratorium on building in the settlements.
In an interview with London-based newspaper Al-Hayat, Aboul Gheit said waiting for a renewed freeze will only complicate peace talks, and that the most important issue is borders.
Aboul Gheit also hinted that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas does not think a settlement freeze is essential.
