WASHINGTON - Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu pledged on Sunday to work alongside US President Barak Obama for a way to renew frozen peace talks with the Palestinians.

Responding to Obama's efforts to ease tensions with Israel in a speech to a pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC, over policies on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which the US leader presented last week, Netanyahu issued a statement saying:

"I am a partner to President Obama's wish to promote peace and I appreciate his efforts in the past and present to achieve this goal. I am determined to work with President Obama to find ways to renew peace talks."
