Defense Miniser Ehud Barak on Friday discussed the prospect of sharing Jerusalem with the Palestinians as part of a final peace agreement, sharply contrasting with views held by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, reported AFP.

Speaking at a Brookings Institution conference, Barak was quoted as saying: "Jerusalem will be discussed at the end with…western Jerusalem and the Jewish (areas) for us, the refugee-populated Arab neighborhoods for them and an agreed upon solution in the holy places.”

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who also spoke at the conference Friday, expressed frustration with the Israel-Palestinian impasse while insisting the Obama administration will "not lose hope."

She said the US will keep pressing for a solution, and she called on Israelis and Palestinians to set aside their differences.
