AMMAN — The government on Friday renewed its condemnation of recently announced Israeli plans to build more settlements on Palestinian land, including East Jerusalem.

Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said that such provocative policies harm efforts to revive peace negotiations, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Momani, also the government spokesperson, said such procedures are in violation of international laws, and represent a flagrant violation of the rights of the Palestinian people. The minister praised the stances of world powers that denounced Israel's continuous settlement building, which threatens the peace process.
