“The substance and timing of the announcement, particularly with the launching of proximity talks, is precisely the kind

of step that undermines the

trust we need right now.” --Joe Biden

「這項宣布的主旨和時機,尤其值此近距離間接會談展開之際,對於我們當前亟需的信任是不折不扣的破壞。」

以色列9日宣布要在耶路撒冷東城的猶太屯墾區新建1600戶住宅,正在以國訪問的美國副總統拜登斥責此舉可能阻礙以巴重返談判桌。proximity talks係指美方以中間人身分斡旋的以巴會談,但以巴雙方並不面對面參與會談。
