The same day, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas warned that this policy could destroy the Middle East peace process. Abbas’s spokesperson said Israeli settlements will bring negotiations to a standstill.

As a mediator, US Secretary of State John Kerry is working with both Israel and Palestine to bridge their differences with the hope that a framework agreement can be reached before the deadline on April 29th.
