Netanyahu: No deal yet with US on settlements

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that despite recent reports, no agreement has been reached with the Trump administration on building a new settlement over the Green Line in exchange for a partial building freeze in areas outside of existing large settlement blocs.
"The talks are still ongoing and media reports are untrue," he said at the weekly meeting of his Likud faction.
"Over the last few days media reports have surfaced saying that we have come to agreements with the White House on settlement building," Netanyahu said, "there are a lot of inaccuracies in these reports and I will not get into the details right now. The talks with the White House are still happening and I hope they will conclude as soon as possible."
