Israel will build "thousands" of new homes in settlements in the West Bank, the country's housing minister insisted on Wednesday, just hours before Israeli-Palestinian peace talks are due to resume.

"We will build thousands of homes in the coming year in Judaea-Samaria (West Bank). No one dictates where we can build," said Uri Ariel, in remarks broadcast by Israeli public radio.
