Netanyahu "determined to work with Obama" for peace

Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu expressed Sunday "appreciation" for remarks made by US President Barack Obama and said he was ready to work with Obama's administration toward a peace agreement with Palestinians, dpa reported.

"I share the president's desire to advance in peace", Netanyahu said in a statement sent by his office to reporters.

"I am determined to work together with President Obama in order to find ways of renewing peace negotiations. Peace is a vital need for all of us," Netanyahu said after Obama adressed a pro-Israeli association in Washington.

Speaking to the annual gathering of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Obama said Sunday his framework for establishing Israeli-Palestinian borders based on 1967 lines would have to account for the demographic changes on the ground that have taken place since Israel seized control of the West Bank.
