In response to President Barack Obama's criticism of Israel's most recently announced building plans in East Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's spokesman made the following statements on behalf of the Prime Minister: "Jerusalem is not a settlement." "Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel." "Israel never agreed to limit its construction in any way in Jerusalem." "Israel sees no connection at all between the peace process and building plans in Jerusalem."
