The President tried to find a more diplomatic tone saying that these kinds of disagreements will happen “between friends.” The remarks from the two leaders came after a lengthy closed-door meeting at the White House. “We value your efforts to advance the peace process,” Netanyahu said after that meeting. “Israel wants peace, I want peace. … We want a peace that will endure. … For there to be peace, Palestinians cannot expect Israel to go back to the 1967 lines.”
In his speech yesterday, President Obama said that the U.S. supports the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel based on borders that existed before the 1967 Six Day War.
