After landing in Israel on Wednesday evening, Defense Minister Ehud Barak called Monday's meeting between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama "good" and "constructive"
"The meeting with US President Barack Obama was good, important and constructive. It created a joint basis for advancing the peace process in order to achieve an agreement with the Palestinians," Barak said, adding that he did not understand why the media reports on the meeting were so negative.
The defense minister went on to praise Netanyahu for keeping the details of the meeting confidential.
"Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is showing true leadership and responsibility by not revealing the details of his one-on-one meeting with President Obama," said Barak.
