Israel's security cabinet approved the construction of the first new settlement in the occupied West Bank in two decades on Thursday, even as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu negotiates with Washington on a possible curb of settlement activity.

Sweden's UN Ambassador Olof Skoog, a member of the Security Council urged the 15-member Security Council to respond to Israel’s latest settlement plan.

Israel plans to build a new settlement, intended for some 40 Jewish settlements evicted from Amona, a West Bank outpost razed in February because it was built on private Palestinian land.
