Israel Demands Written US Guarantees before Freeze

Tuesday, 16 Nov 2010 11:26 AM

 

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. (Writing by Allyn Fisher-Ilan; Editing by Crispian Balmer) (allyn.fisher.thomsonreuters.com; +972-2-6322202; Reuters Messaging:allyn.fisher.thomsonreuters.com@thomsonreuters.net)
