Landau on Construction: I Would Have Expected More


Minister Uzi Landau responded Sunday to the government’s decision to allow the construction of 3,000 new housing units in the Jerusalem area, east of the 1949 armistice line.

“Nobody tells the British or French where to build in their capitals, and that’s how it should be in Jerusalem,” Landau declared. “The Palestinians are violating every agreement and that will make future negotiations harder. I would have expected that they would build even more, and I want to believe that this will not be the last step.”
