Obama meets with Jewish leaders on Israel, Iran
President Barack Obama is telling Jewish leaders the United States remains committed to Israel and will not implement any foreign policy that would threaten that country's security, Associated Press reported.
Obama on Monday invited more than a dozen Jewish groups to a private meeting at the White House. He explained the United States' approach to restarting peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian people and answered questions from a sometimes skeptical group.
Participants said Obama didn't introduce any new proposals during the hourlong discussion, but spent the bulk of the time seeking comments and trying to allay concerns.
