Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday that it would be unacceptable to extend a slowdown on West Bank settlement construction, even as Mideast peace talks get under way next week.
Israel pledged Sunday it immediately will allow all goods into Gaza except weapons and other items deemed to have a military use under its decision to ease its 3-year-old blockade of the Palestinian territory.
