Rice calls for Israel to halt settlement expansion

AMMAN (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called on Monday for a halt to Israeli settlement building after Israel’s Jerusalem municipality said it planned to build 600 new housing units.

“We continue to state America’s position that settlement activity should stop, that its expansion should stop — that is indeed not consistent with ‘road map’ obligations,” Rice said at a press conference in Amman, Jordan with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
