Clinton 'calls on Israel to extend settlement freeze'

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday it would be extremely helpful for Israel to extend its partial freeze on West Bank settlement building, even for a limited amount of time.

"Where we sit now it would be useful for some extension, it would be extremely useful," Clinton said in an interview with Israel's Channel 10 television.

"I don't think a limited extension would undermine the process going forward if there were a decision agreed to by both parties," she said.
