State Department spokesperson Mark Toner responded to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's speech to the Knesset Monday, expressing frustration in the stalled peace talks but also stating that the United States was looking forward to Netanyahu's upcoming US visit.

"Obviously, there are tremendous challenges in the peace process moving forward. We obviously took a hit last week with Senator Mitchell resigning. But that process continues, and Senator Mitchell has created a strong team, and they’re going to continue to work to move this process forward," Toner said. "We look forward to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit at the end of this week with the President."
