Netanyahu stands firm against demands from Obama - Telegraph
Israel stood firm against demands from Barack Obama on Monday to cease the construction of Jewish settlements and embrace the "two-state solution" to achieving peace in the Middle East.
Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, in his first meeting with the US president, made it clear that while he welcomed Mr Obama's commitment to the region, he was more concerned about dealing with the threat of Iran than peace talks.
Mr Obama was unable to secure any commitments on ceasing the construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank or embracing the "two-state solution" to achieving peace in the Middle East.
How do you all rate Obama's meeting with netanyahu? Was it a success, and for whom?
I think netanyahu is right about Iran. It should be the focus with Obama, before talks of settlements, and a two state solution can be discussed.
