JERUSALEM, Nov 16 (Reuters) - Israel has demanded the United
States provide written security guarantees before it votes on
whether to agree to freeze Jewish settlement building in the
West Bank, an Israeli political source said on Tuesday.
The source added that Palestinian opposition to some of the
pledges that Washington has verbally offered Israel was delaying
progress towards finalising U.S. proposals for resuming the
stalled Middle East peace talks.
There was no immediate comment from Palestinian officials.
