Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's conditions for diplomacy that might lead to Palestinian statehood put Israel's credibility in question, US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday.

In an interview with Israel's Channel Two television, Obama said Netanyahu's position "has so many caveats, so many conditions that it is not realistic to think that those conditions would be met at any time in the near future."

"So the danger is that Israel as a whole loses credibility."
