Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed hope on Wednesday night that US President Barack Obama's visit to the region would "help turn a page" in Israel's relations with the Palestinians.

In a joint press conference with Obama following a lengthy meeting, Netanyahu said that with the entry of the new government, "Israel remains fully committed to peace and a solution for two states for two people."

"We extend our hands in peace and friendship to Palestinians... let us put aside all precondition and to work together to achieve a historic compromise and put an end to the conflict," the prime minister said.
