Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reached understandings with US President Barack Obama regarding continued construction in east Jerusalem, Netanyahu's spokesman Nir Hafetz told Army Radio on Friday morning.

Hefetz confirmed that the main point of contention between Netanyahu and Obama was the US demand that Israel extend the ten-month West Bank building moratorium.

Netanyahu's spokesman rejected reports that Obama demanded that the Palestinian Authority be given control over east Jerusalem's Abu Dis neighborhood.
