Netanyahu holds talks with Obama amid settlement row


news.bbc.co.uk

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has held talks with US President Barack Obama - their first meeting since a row over plans to build homes in East Jerusalem.

They held two meetings at the White House in what the Israelis said was a "good atmosphere".

Mr Netanyahu had warned earlier that Middle East peace talks could be further delayed by Palestinian demands for a freeze on settlement building.

The Palestinians said Mr Netanyahu's policy was stalling the peace process.

I like this part :



He added that the US president later went to his residence, but Mr Netanyahu requested another meeting and the two leaders spent another 30 minutes together.
[...]
But the White House had no immediate comment on their content. In a break with convention, reporters were not invited to witness the pair shake hands at the start of their discussions.


This shows how the US is starting to distance itself from the Israeli government. I am assuming that Natanyahoo and Obama left on some shaky terms after the first meeting because he requested another "30 minutes", maybe to try to fix something?

Finally some progress towards a normal world...

Keeping the peace,
