Netanyahu and Obama discuss path to Middle East peace
US President Barack Obama and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu have admitted to "differences" on the path to Mid-East peace, after they met in Washington.
The talks came after Mr Obama said in a key speech that any future Palestinian state must be based on the borders that existed prior to the 1967 war.
Mr Netanyahu said there could be some concessions, but stressed again that the 1967 lines were "indefensible". He said that while Israel was prepared to make compromises, Palestinians had to accept "some basic realities".
