Quartet Demands that Israel Continue Freeze

The Middle East Quartet (comprised of the European Union, Russia, United Nations and United States) has officially demanded that Israel should extend the American-imposed 10-month ban on Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria when it expires on Sunday in order not to disrupt negotiations with the Western-backed Palestinian Authority. The Quartet demand was released following a meeting of representatives in New York.

A draft of the statement had been released earlier on Tuesday by Reuters.
