US President George W Bush has said Israel must end occupation of Arab land taken in 1967 so that a viable Palestinian state can be created.
He also urged a solution to the Palestinian refugee issue which would involve paying compensation.
This is thought to be the first time Mr Bush has publicly pressed the Israelis to give up occupied land.
Mr Bush was speaking in Jerusalem after two days of talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.
