Ramat Shlomo project advances just as Biden arrives, says Peace Now

A building project in Jerusalem’s Ramat Shlomo neighborhood, whose approval angered the US administration the last time Vice President Joe Biden visited in March 2010, has continued advancing despite commitments to halt it, Peace Now said on Monday.

Peace Now’s 2010 revelation of the approval of the housing project in a Jerusalem municipal committee led to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu being scolded by Biden and then-secretary of state and current Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
