PMO: Gov't is open to negotiated solution for Silwan project

Israel is amenable to a negotiated solution regarding the King's Garden redevelopment project in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) stated Tuesday.
"The PMO expresses the hope that the dialogue will continue with those who built their homes on public land in violation of the law and that an agreed upon solution will be found that will keep in line with the law," the PMO said in statement.
The PMO's response came amid concerns emanating from Washington regarding the demolition and redevelopment plan approved by the Jerusalem Municipality for the predominantly Arab neighborhood.
