WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had a "frank and cordial" conversation before he came to Washington, US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Friday.

But Toner declined to confirm a New York Times report that the two had a "furious phone call" in which the Israeli prime minister drove home complaints that President Barack Obama has pushed Israel too hard to make concessions to the Palestinians.
