Obama urges Israeli-Palestinian compromise
US President Barack Obama says a "new chapter in American diplomacy" has been turned after the Arab Spring uprisings.
In a speech at the state department, Mr Obama said the future of the US was bound to the Middle East by forces of economics, security, history and fate.
Speaking about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he urged both sides to make concessions in order to find common ground.
