US President Barack Obama has not slammed the door on the possibility of releasing imprisoned Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, diplomatic advisor to President Shimon Peres, Nadav Tamir said Thursday morning.

Speaking with Army Radio Tamir said, "it was not a decisive no."

His comments came following White House Spokesman Jay Carney's statement Wednesday that the US position on the issue "has not changed and will not change today."
