US deals Abbas another serious blow with regard to settlement freeze

WEST BANK, (PIC)–  An official PA source said on Thursday that the US has informed them of the failure of its efforts to get the Israeli occupation to renew the “freeze” on settlement expansion to give peace negotiations a chance.

The official told AFP on condition anonymity that the US administration informed them that the Israeli government did not agree to renewing the freeze on settlement expansion, adding that the US will continue in its efforts in this regard.

The “peace talks” which were resumed in September, after intensive US efforts,  stopped shortly after they started because the Israeli government refused to renew the “freeze” on settlement building in the West Bank.

Despite this US failure in convincing the Israeli government to freeze settlement for 90 days, the PA is still holding to the negotiations option.
