Netanyahu avoids discussing settlement freeze with cabinet

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu did not refer to an end of the settlement freeze at the beginning of his weekly Sunday cabinet meeting. He did, however, discuss the second round of direct talks scheduled for Sharm e-Sheikh on Tuesday.
Contrary to Netanyahu's silence on the issue, a number of ministers gave their opinion on the issue of the West Bank building moratorium, which is set to expire at the end of September.
