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.
