(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Responding to the Israeli government announcement that it would build 900 new housing units in the settlement of Ramat Shlomo in East Jerusalem, State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke on Thursday said the #UnitedStates "strongly" opposes the action.

"This is a disappointing development, and we are concerned about it - just as the new Israeli government has been announced," Rathke said during a briefing. Israel's leaders have asserted that they remain committed to a two-state solution, and we need to see that commitment in the actions of the Israeli government.


"Moving forward with construction of housing units in East Jerusalem is damaging and inconsistent with that commitment," he said. "We continue to engage with the highest levels of the Israeli government, and we continue to make our position clear that we view this as illegitimate".
