Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Office on Wednesday described US Secretary of State John Kerry's speech concerning the two-state solution as "biased," and one that ignores the "root of the conflict."

"The speech delivered by [Kerry]... was biased against Israel," the PMO said in a short statement.



"For more than an hour, Kerry obsessed over the issue of settlements and hardly touched on the root of the conflict - Palestinian resistance to a Jewish state within any borders," the statement added.

Kerry on Wednesday delivered a speech at the US State Department in Washington, outlining his hopes for a Middle East peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians.
