March 25 (Bloomberg) -- The Bush administration opposes Israel's plan to expand the largest Jewish settlement in the West Bank, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said after a visit to the region by two top Bush administration officials.
``Anything that raises the prospect that you're going to have an expansion of settlements in this way, particularly in a sensitive area, is not really a satisfactory response,'' Rice said in an interview with The Los Angeles Times.
Rice commented after Elliott Abrams, a deputy U.S. national security adviser, and David Welch, the assistant U.S. secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, met this week with both Israeli and Palestinian officials to discuss the matter.
