Israel's national security advisor Yaakov Amidror on Monday denied reports published in Yediot Ahronot Monday morning claiming that from conversations between Amidror and his predecessor Uzi Arad, US President Barack Obama intends to call on Israel to return to 1967 borders in a speech he is expected to give Thursday.

Amidror rejected claims that he tried to convince a White House national security adviser to change what Obama plans to discuss in his speech, telling Army Radio that he never "tried to convince anyone of anything" and that "only thing right about the report was mine and Uzi Arad's name."

Yediot had reported that Obama would also propose a plan to divide Jerusalem between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, but will not support a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.
