WASHINGTON — In his first public remarks about the Israeli approval of an east Jerusalem building plan, US President Barack Obama on Wednesday said the US-Israeli relationship is not in crisis.

Obama told Fox News Channel that the new housing units "weren't helpful" in carving out a peace between Israelis and Palestinians, but that Washington remains a committed ally for Israel.

The expansion of Ramat Shlomo was a poor choice for Israel, Obama said, but added that, "Friends are going to disagree sometimes."
