WASHINGTON - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he was prepared to make compromises to peace but he rejected President Barack Obama's proposal that Israel return to its 1967 borders.

Obama and Netanyahu met at the White House a day after the US president endorsed a longstanding Palestinian demand on the borders for their future state.

The US president said that any final solution must include two states, Israel and a Palestinian state, which exist viably on each others borders.

Netanyahu said that while the refugee issue needed to be resolved, it could not be resolved within Israel's borders.
